Not all pain is physical and not all wounds are visible...walk gently in the lives of others. To those that may be suffering in silence, you're not alone!! You have us!!
As you may know, I am running the NY Marathon this year on 11/6 in support of mental illness. In my search to find a charity to run for I knew I wanted to get behind mental illness as that is something that has touched my life and the lives of so many family members and friends. I came across Minding Your Mind who has been named an official charity partner of the marathon this year.
Minding Your Mind’s (MYM) primary objective is to provide mental health education to adolescents, teens and young adults, their parents, teachers and school administrators. Our goal is to reduce the stigma and destructive behaviors often associated with mental health issues. Treatment is available, yet only 3 out of 10 individuals needing help actually seek help. Minding Your Mind Programs move away from crisis based response to prevention through education.
I thank you in advance for your support and I hope you'll help us break the silence; break the stigma. Love to all! xo
