Today is #worldmentalhealthday
💫 over the past six years, i’ve become so passionate about raising awareness for mental health on the daily. i never thought something would mean as much to me as mental health advocacy does, and i’m so grateful for all of the amazing people i’ve met in the mental health community (@eddy_liz, @am.nda, @nicoleacardoza, @bronniemusic, @channingsmith15
to name a few).
1 in 5 people have a mental illness, but 5 in 5 people have mental health. we all need to realize the importance of our mental health, not just people living with mental illness. mental health is a part of all of everyone’s health. we all deserve to prioritize our mental health when we need to. it isn’t selfish to put your mental health above everything else.
you deserve the proper care that fits your needs for your mental health. whether that be therapy, medication, exercise, meditation, going outdoors, or something “non-traditional,” you deserve to do what is the healthiest for you.
we need to all come together and use our voices to speak up about mental health every single day of the year, not just today.
