In honor of Mental Health Awareness month, I’ve been seeing article on mental illness all over the place, but I thought this was a good one to share. A whopping 31% of people struggling with mental illness don’t want to seek treatment because they fear being judged. Sweet Jesus, make it stop. We need to open up the damn windows on this subject, and air out the room. Please be mindful of those around you who might be suffering in silence. Please talk openly about depression. It’s our world to change. Let’s all do our part. And if you are so inclined, please give to the kick ass organization Cure Alliance.

I'm a wife, the mother of two full-on adult kids, and a dog, a really, really good friend, a freelance advertising copywriter, and an accidental blogger. (I'm also a whole bunch of other stuff, but who's got time to hear about it.) You should come visit my blog (it explains the accidental blogger thing, plus you might like it). It's at gratitudeathon.wordpress.com. I write about stuff I'm grateful for (I'd be grateful if you stopped by.). View all posts by tonilansbury
