Mental Health Champions: How Dr Kim Burgess Is Helping To Promote Mental Wellness By Advocating Awareness and Acceptance

We must change the way we think about mental health — change our beliefs and attitudes. We must change our interpretations and assumptions of what’s happening with someone, and stop making judgments about people when we don’t know their background or experiences. Give people the benefit of the doubt because we cannot possibly know their situation, yet we act like we do and make ill-informed conclusions. We must change our family, school, and societal treatment of mental health. We must get past the zone of awareness about mental health and stigma and move forward faster into the zone of taking action.
