Encouraging open and honest conversations about mental health is key to overcoming misconceptions and breaking down barriers to help and treatment. Recently, we’ve seen a number of celebrities and athletes speak out about their own personal mental health stories. I believe this is a powerful way to build a greater understanding of conditions that are often misunderstood. In our organization, we try to share stories from those who feel comfortable speaking about their own struggles or caring for a loved one with a condition. These stories make mental illness more accessible and relatable, and they help us create a culture where everyone feels like they belong.
