Today is ‘Bell Let’s Talk’ day so I thought I’d write up a post about how important it is to be aware of mental health disorders and treat them as a serious matter because they are. Mental health disorders can happen to anyone; whether you’re female, male, young, old, in school, employed, etc. And it is happening to everyone that is why we need to get talking about it! For years, mental health has been put on the back burner and people who did have depression, anxiety, etc. wouldn’t talk about it because it was almost embarrassing and no one would ever believe them. These people would receive comments like “you’re just having a bad day”, “stop being so stressed out!”, “you’re no fun when you’re like this”, etc. and that just isn’t okay. Today is the day to speak up and tell people they are not alone. This is the first year I have ever felt the effects of mental health disorders and it has really opened my eyes. Just remember that there is always going to be someone there for you, there will always be people that love you and there will always be people that are going through what you’re going through.
YOU ARE NOT ALONE!
