Mental Health Awareness Week!!

Let’s talk mental health…

A topic that we do not often address as it is a very sensitive one but under no circumstances should it be swept under the rug.

Believe it or not but over 450 million people suffer with some sort of mental illness at one point throughout their lives, the severity will differ depending on the individual.
Some illnesses include, Bipolar, Depression, Anxiety & Anger Disorder and disorders that can affect your every day eating habits. 

(All of which are equally as important as the other)

There is a saying that I live by, “Everyone you meet is fighting a battle you know nothing about, Be kind. Always” – some may agree others may have different opinions. My point is, to never judge or assume. Things are not always as they seem on the surface. Even the smallest acts of kindness go a long way.

Be there for your loved ones, friends, colleagues or even the stranger that choses to confide in you. 

Be that support or that listening ear.

Sometimes just being there for a person and giving them your time can help. No two people are the same, some may find it difficult to communicate or express themselves. But it’s more what you do as well as being present that counts and shows that individual that you care.

For those that may need to know this… it is ok to feel, to speak out and seek help. Seeking help is an act of braveness.

**We care and YOU are important!**
