In recent years, the discussion around mental health has become more common and normalized. Mental health problems are common, real medical conditions, and are not character flaws. It is not taboo to openly discuss/acknowledge the presence of a mental illness, just like it is not taboo to suffer from a physical illness. There are effective help and treatments available for mental health illnesses, so let’s get educated and learn how we can help! You may end up saving a loved one’s life one day!
AND…If you find trainings such as First Aid and CPR important, I hope you also consider taking Mental Health First Aid as it is just as life saving and effective!
