Mental Health Awareness Week is here! October 7-13. “CureStigma” is the theme throughout this week and month. Did you know, one in five Americans struggle with mental health. I read an article that compared the mental health stigma to a virus. This virus shames people into silence. We don’t seek help. Lives are lost. The perception of mental health won’t change unless we act on it. Speak up! It took me too many precious years to finally do that.
I’m going to pass this entry to my sister-in-law who wrote a post on mental health and pregnancy and infant loss. I found her words too inspiring not to share. I have attached a link to her post. Enjoy!
