Mental Health Awareness Week – October 3rd through 9th
This week is dedicated to spreading awareness about mental disorders.Â Through the 9th of October, organizations will be working to help others understand that mental health is just as much of a cause as other disorders and to fight against the hurtful stereotypes associated with these illnesses.
According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness, “mental illnesses are medical conditions that disrupt a person’s thinking, feeling, mood, ability to relate to others and daily functioning.Â [They] are medical conditions that often result in a diminished capacity for coping with the ordinary demands of life.”
There are many sources of support for those with mental disorders.Â Knowing where to get help and how to utilize their services are key to beginning recovery or treatment.Â That’s what makes this particular cause so important.Â The stigmas need to be put aside and acceptance that mental disorders are real and treatable needs to be established.
For more information about mental health, please visit the National Alliance on Mental Illness website.
