Strap in everyone, this is gonna be a doozy.
Everybody has Mental Health. Not everybody has mental illness, but it is becoming more and more socially acceptable every day to be open about your struggles. Mental Health awareness is an incredible way of educating the public about what a mental health disorder really is, and how different ones affect people in different ways will hopefully help break the stigma surrounding these disorders. It could also help someone recognize any warning signs of mental illness that they, or a loved one, could be experiencing.
I myself struggle with many different kinds of mental illness and have suffered from the stigma surrounding them in the past. Learning to have the strength to divulge that information to anyone, whether it's an employer, a friend, a family member, or anyone, can be a huge challenge within itself. Society makes you believe that you should be ashamed of what you have, and that you shouldn't tell anyone, because it could be some kind of 'deal-breaker'. Getting a job or making a friend should never be dependant on whether or not you struggle with mental illness, because it's just like living with any kind of illness (also its just ridiculous). There are things you can do to help keep your symptoms under control, (medication, counselling, therapy, etc.) and you can live a perfectly normal life. You shouldn't be ashamed and hide something that is a part of you; and that's all it is: a part of who you are. Your mental illness doesn't define you, you define you, in how you treat others and how you treat yourself.
Basically I am saying that mental health awareness us so important; because if someone can recognize the signs in themselves or others around them, it could potentially save a life. Also, just love yourself, you deserve it.
