Today I learned through Jo Middleton’s blog Slummy Single Mummy that today is the start of Mental Health Awareness Week. We’re all aware that ‘mental health’ or mental health issues exist, so what does this really mean? Raising awareness for something that we all already know about?
#9: Mental Health America is a website that offers mental health information regarding PTSD. This website discusses symptoms of PTSD, treatments such as cognitive behavioral therapy and exposure therapy, medication, support groups, relaxation, excise, and keeping a journal.
NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, is the nation’s largest grassroots mental health organization dedicated to building better lives for the millions of Americans affected by mental illness. NAMI advocates for access to services, treatment, supports and research and is steadfast in its commitment to raising awareness and building a community of hope for all of those in need.
