It wasn’t by accident that I chose May 1 to release my new book, Stay With Me.
May is Mental Health Awareness month and just as this subject affected the story line of my book, so it affects us in ‘real life.’
An estimated 26.2 percent of Americans, ages 18 and older, or about one in four adults suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. That’s 57.7 million people.
This is why this month of awareness is so important. Change starts with awareness and awareness can only be brought about by education.
So for the next 30 days I’ll be posting links and articles and sharing information to bring awareness to this crisis.
Please share this with others, and don’t forget to get a copy of my book. The story is important and positive. We may not be the one to receive the diagnosis, but ‘it’ affects us too, nonetheless. And if we can all learn how to care for one another, this world will be a better place.
