Mental health is not something to feel embarrassed about. Stigmas frighten us and sometimes keeps us from moving forward and receiving the help that we need. Understanding who you are and your mental health (or a family member's mental health) can help you feel centered and connected to your inner you. Learning how to identify symptoms, warning signs, and triggers to your daily problematic concerns can create understanding and empathy towards yourself and others; and lead you to feel comfortable functioning in your everyday life.
