Mental health issues touch nearly every condition area and are a frequent topic for Health Activists and patients alike. In honor of 2010 Mental Health Month, brought to us by Mental Health America, this month’s Blog Carnival will focus on the importance of mental health within your communities.
This Month’s Topic: Mental Health Month and Your Community
Tell us – and your fellow Health Activists – how mental health has touched your community and what role it plays in the conversations there. Do members of your communities talk about depression and mental health issues in conjunction with their other health conditions or is this a topic that doesn’t get discussed? If you’re already focused on Mental Health Month, let us know how you (and your communities!) are chooding to honor and engage this month – and add your ideas to our ongoing discussion – Get Involved: Gearing Up for Mental Health Month.
Whatever you choose to write about, there are two things we ask that you do:
