I just want to take a moment and thank my Canadian readers (I know you’re out there!) for reading this blog and I hope you’re supporting the #BellLetsTalk social media campaign today to raise awareness for mental health issues and reducing the stigma of mental illness. I understand that there’s some fundraising as well. Reading some of the stories associated with the hashtag has been inspiring and affirming. It’s so important to share our stories and be open about the challenges of mental health- whether it’s seeking treatment, confronting misunderstanding or as part of our own recovery.
