The Importance of Mental Health Awareness
In today’s fast-paced and ever-changing environment, the importance of mental health awareness has become more crucial. Mental health is a fundamental aspect of our overall well-being, affecting every part of our lives, from our relationships and work to physical health. And, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, more than one in five adults live with a mental illness.
Fostering awareness can help break down these barriers and encourage individuals to seek support without thinking twice, especially during Mental Health Awareness Month.
Things you can do to improve mental health awareness
- Educate yourself and others around you!
Educating yourself and others about mental health awareness is a crucial step in promoting understanding, empathy, and support for individuals struggling with mental health issues.
- Listen to others.
When someone is sharing their personal stories, it’s important to actively listen and show support through your body language and actions.
- Share helpful resources.
Continuing to be an advocate and sharing helpful resources online, in-person, and verbally with whoever may be interested is a great way to improve mental health awareness and continue to stress the importance of mental health awareness.
Something important that Team Select would like to note is that if you’re struggling with mental health, seeking professional help is a necessary form of self-care and is encouraged. A mental health professional can provide guidance and support personalized to your needs. In addition, therapy or counseling can offer a safe space to explore emotions, develop coping strategies, and enhance overall well-being.
Mental health resources include BetterHelp, Talkspace, National Institute of Mental Health and Mental Health First Aid from National Council for Mental Wellbeing.
