Why don’t we make our mental health as important as our physical health? Unfortunately, because of mental health stigma. How we view mental health keeps people from ever seeking proper treatment. Just as addressing any physical illness early provides better outcomes, so can addressing our mental health. Lack of mental health care is the root of many of the problems facing community. Drug addiction, violence, sexual abuse, and so many more issues can all be rooted in mental illness. By properly addressing mental health issues, we can heal one person, one family, and hopefully one community at a time.
