Happy Sunday, Liberty Lovers!
Did you know that 1 in 5 U.S. adults experience mental illness? Aside from being a liberty warrior, I am also a social worker. I have always been passionate about mental health issues and helping people.
May is Mental Health Awareness Month. I am here to tell you that if you struggle with mental illness, you are NOT alone. In this video, I will tell you about famous people in history who have battled mental health issues themselves.
Fact: Having a mental health disorder does not mean you can’t be successful in life. Don’t let your diagnosis define you. You deserve to be happy. Help is available!
