Mental Health Awareness Week: October 5-11, 2014

Did you know that one in four adults living in America experience a mental illness in a given year? That's right...look around you. If there are four or more people, one of them has, has battled or is currently undiagnosed with a mental illness. I think that's what makes me so sick is that we have created a stigma over something that is too common. But I shall not stand on my soapbox and rant on this post. I come to you with greetings and good cheer because I am bringing awareness to something so taboo. This week is Mental Health Awareness Week! I am a avid supporter of NAMI, which stands for National Alliance on Mental Illness. Here is a link from NAMI's website, so you can see how you can take action in the plight. I will be actively engaged in the community this week and may try my best to share mental health posts, as well.
What has your experience been with mental illnesses? I would love to hear your personal stories.
