Destroy the Stigma

For those of you who read my earlier post titled “Real Talk: Mental Health” the following blog post by a fellow blogger provides great points on the stigmatization of mental health and its consequences of those afflicted not reaching out to receive the care that they need. Opening the discussion up about mental health is all too important, as I talk about in my previous post, as many incidents of preventable gun violence, such as suicide, are a result of treatable mental illnesses. It is up to us to de-stigmatize mental health issues so that those who are affected can receive the treatment that they need to be healthy physically, emotionally and mentally.
