Why mental health awareness is important?

Mental health isn’t just a conversation for people dealing with mental health disorders. It impacts our social, emotional, physical, and cognitive well-being. Unfortunately, many people don’t receive the treatment that they need because of the stigma associated with mental health. Some don’t even realize that treatment is available. When these people suffer quietly, they feel lonely and disenfranchised.  We miss out on their brilliance. Every year, suicide is one of the top three causes of death in the United States. And it’s been on the rise in recent years. This is true for all economic classes, ethnicities, and genders, although some groups are at a markedly higher risk. Every suicide is a tragedy. Death by suicide comes at a high cost. Not only does it warrant financial losses it’s, more importantly, devastating for the survivors of the person who died. We never truly know how our actions impact another person, but if raising awareness can save a life, it is a truly worthwhile endeavor.
