Why is mental health awareness important? (Dealing with Depression: Part I)

The fight against mental illness and just bringing awareness to it is really important because it is not like an illness that other people can see generally. Sometimes there are symptoms but a lot of times someone who is struggling is not showing those emotions outwardly. It is something they are experiencing but they may present themselves like they are okay.
We are a non-profit with a mission to create awareness around mental health challenges. We provide a repository of mental health stories that are relatable and uplifting whether one is sharing their story or seeking inspiration in stories of others. Visit us to learn more about how we can plant the “seed” for realizing, relating, inspiring and seeking help surrounding mental health challenges.
