Letter to the Editor: Mental Health

Article Link

This post is one that is very personal to me, in that I am posting a letter I wrote to the editor of the Warren Times-Observer in response to this linked article I had read on their site.

The letter is one that tries to shine a positive light on the mental health community, while also touching on a prominent myth about people with mental health issues. I also share a story about a personal encounter I had while shopping to help show how the myth impacts the mental health community.

Peace be with all who read my letter!

This November 19, 2013 blog post found on the Healthy Place website talks about three things that people are likely to not be aware of when it comes to receiving Disability, and odds are won’t think about unless they or someone they know is in a place where they need to apply for disability.  The exception being people who work with the disabled providing care or other services to them and other similar people.
