When someone has a physical issue or disorder, it’s hard for people not to notice. Many times, the individual’s pain and suffering are apparent. However, with a mental disorder, the individual suffers in silence. We sometimes forget how lucky we are that depression and anxiety are but temporary issues in our lives. That’s not the case with someone who has to live with a mental disorder every day. The great thing about Mental Health Awareness Month is it also reminds us people are suffering in the world around us, sometimes without knowing it.
Recognizing Mental Health Awareness Month
Every year, a number of the top mental health organization in the US, including some government agencies, sponsor mental health month events. Mental Health Awareness Month 2019 will be held this year in May as is the tradition.
During the Mental Health Awareness Month festivities, doctors, hospitals, and psychiatric organizations will be sponsoring events around the nation. Of course, many of these events will focus on offering free mental health screenings and providing information about mental health issues. Mental health month is also an excellent time for people to learn about available treatment options and resources.
In the end, Mental Health Awareness Month 2019 strives to bring us together as a community to help combat mental health issues.
