(Soul on Fire–3rd Day)
…so this was originally an email that I altered to be a blog post…so if it feels awkward that might be why…
Today is Let’s Talk Day.
Everyone has a story, and everyone has pain in their life. For 1 in 5 people part of that story is mental illness but stigma (negative attitudes or prejudice and negative responses or discrimination) makes everything worse and keeps people from sharing their story and getting help.
So let’s talk. Let’s work together towards a stigma free society. Everyone wants to be heard; will you listen and respond? Let’s make it our goal to help keep the conversation going all year long and make every day a day it is okay to talk about mental health.
