Today is Mental Health Day

Today is Mental Health Day

A day set aside to bring awareness to the issues that affect so many people. How many? Glad you asked:

1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness each year

1 in 25 U.S. adults experience serious mental illness each year

1 in 6 U.S. youth aged 6-17 experience a mental health disorder each year

Suicide is the 2nd leading cause of death among people aged 10-34

So be mindful today of this and let it sink in. Someone you know is suffering and you may very well be the person who can offer them encouragement and assurance that they are loved and cared for and about.

Be nice to yourself and all you encounter today, we are after all, all in this life together.
