Monumental. I believe that mental health awareness is “Monumental” for all communities. The fact that it is highly stigmatized and effortlessly avoided creates the need to lay emphasis on the subject. On a large scale this awareness is shunned and serves as a silent “assassin” to the suffering individuals and those around them with acts such as suicide and mass killings. Monomental. Mono. Oneness. The connection and unification in understanding individuals who suffer from a form of mental illness. Mental health issues are not limited to any particular group and affect all communities. We must all educate ourselves on the struggle that these disorders can have on each of our lives.
I hope this site provides some insight into an arena that can impact everyone’s lives. Feel free to share your comments and stories as well.
