Looking for a New Year’s Resolution?
Talk about mental illness.
Try to talk about it every day and every chance you get.
Stigma of mental illness cannot survive in a world where we discuss it.
It will never survive when we come together to understand how it impacts people and behavior.
I in 5 Americans live with some form of Mental Illness every day.
Over 40,000 Americans die as a result of Suicide each year.
In the United States, teen suicide rates are rising.
Most people never talk about mental illness because of stigma.
How about some more?
You probably know some of these people and for those reading this you may even be one.
One last motivating thought…
Talk brings us all together and through understanding each other we help ourselves.
Now that’s a great way to start this New Year, don’t you think?
