This week is “Mental Health Week” and I would encourage everyone to take some time out of their week to watch at least one, if not all the documentaries on ABC.
Last year David and I stumbled across these series and were amazed how much we didn’t know and how much we learnt throughout the week. We laughed, cried and were amazed how brave people were to share their story.
Most of us will suffer or know some-one who is suffering with mental health issues. This is an illness that is growing in our society and the only way to beat this is to educate ourselves, understand the root cause and hit it head on.
Empathy, understanding, love and patience is what these people need and the only way we can do that is to educate ourselves on how to support them.
So, if you have some spare time check out this website ABC Mental Health Week
If you are struggling with mental health issues or impacted by it you will learn you are not alone and there are many who understand and who are there to support you.
