We’ve talk about mental illness before. It’s one of those things that not a lot of people like to talk about. In most cases, in a lot of cases, I should say, it’s one of those things that you “brush under the rug.” You don’t want people to know about it, and even though your compassion and love for the people in your life who may be suffering from mental illness will not change, you don’t necessarily want anyone else scrutinizing what those two words mean to them.

For me, the definition of mental illness is not nearly as important as the resources available to those suffering from this health condition. Which is how this video came about. I was at a local thrift store and picked up this brochure. Later, when I read it, I realized the message inside really spoke to me.

I hope, at the very least, it might get you thinking about why support services for those suffering from mental  health conditions are so important.
