May: Mental Health Awareness Month
Someone’s mental health and wellbeing is not seen on the surface. It is something buried deep inside them, edging its way to be seen or discovered. This isn’t an illness that can be identified on a person right away, however, like a broken arm, this type of pain deserves all the same treatment and care as would any physical injury.
Mental Health struggles are not always easily shared between friends or even family members. Taking the initiative to check on loved ones, making that first step, asking a question on their wellbeing, their emotions lately or even their day -- or being in-tune with your own emotions, thoughts, and bodily reactions – and seeking treatment options or help when necessary.
Mercer County has a strong support system and the tools in place to assist anyone struggling with these struggles. Thanks to the Coal Country Community Health Clinic.
