It doesn’t matter how supportive their family are, who they are friends with or where they come from – mental illness DOES NOT discriminate!

There’s a campaign: “Let’s Be Open About Mental Health To Break The Stigma” (please like the page on Facebook) to try to get people to talk more about mental health, bring awareness and to let others know it’s okay to ask for help. Let us support this campaign.

 

Stigma-2

Please share this on social media, re-blog, tweet. I’m hoping more people can support this campaign.  Thanks so much!
