MENTAL HEALTH RALLY
☆ Due to covid-19, the 2020 rally will be digitaL ☆
Mental health is just as important as physical health.
It is important to celebrate the beauty of our differences and to understand that there are also invisible wounds. Whether you struggle with an illness, physical or mental--remember this:
Your diagnoses do not define you, they shape who you are today.
Mental health is often considered a taboo topic. Many communities, including ones right here in Massachusetts, lack sufficient mental health education and the necessary resources to eliminate stigma.
Let’s stand up together and help raise awareness about the need for mental health education in Massachusetts, and beyond. It should be a requirement for students, grades 5 through 12 to become familiar with self-care and taking care of their mental health. The more people who are aware of our internal differences, the more inclusive our community will be. We plan to take legislative action in support of bills similar to that of Bill S.244 of Massachusetts and tackle things from a systematic standpoint, as well as cultural.
In the month of May, join us in the Virtual Mental Health Rally.
This is not just a short term plan. Not just raising awareness. There has already been lots of awareness that has been risen about mental illness; we want to work towards legislative action and systematic changes.
