If you haven’t already, take some time to check out the Break the Stigma Project (BSP). You will discover a wonderful community of people who are passionate about educating and inspiring people around mental health issues.
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, the stigma around it shames us all. Mental health deserves the …level of acceptance and resources that physical health currently has in our society. Just as you would not be afraid to seek treatment or talk openly about a broken leg, people experiencing mental illness should not be shamed into suffering alone, in silence.
Join the movement by having the courage to listen, learn and share. ‘Like’ BSP on Facebook, follow us on Twitter (@bsprun) and Instagram (bsp_run), and consider donating to this very worthy cause.
Thank you everyone for a great 2014 for Mental Illness and Mental Health awareness- Let’s continue breaking the stigma in 2015!
