Best of Our Blogs: January 15, 2019

I love when mainstream media covers mental illness is a positive way. It normalizes what we’re all experiencing and yet many still feel scared, ashamed and afraid to talk about it.

That’s why I was excited when I read the January issue of magazine with essays and facts on suicide along with strategies and programs that can help.

We still have a lot of work to do when it comes to destigmatizing mental illness, but when I read accurate and compassionate articles like the ones in O magazine and of course our posts here, I’m hopeful.

The more we share, the less alone we feel.
