Are we prepared?
I think about this post often because it perfectly encapsulates how necessary it is to match our words with our actions. 1 in 4 people in the world will struggle with their mental health at some point in their lives. Despite this, stigmas and discrimination are ever prevalent.
This post reminds me to
1️⃣ Reflect on internalized biases and examine my thinking
2️⃣ Educate myself on mental illnesses and substance use disorders
3️⃣ Be conscious of my words and behaviours
4️⃣ Focus on the positives and offer support & encouragement
5️⃣ Support transformative organizations like @hopefortheday@cmhanational@youthmentalhealth@kidshelpphone@justiceforsoli@mentalhealthcoalition
