Red Cross Post: National Mental Health Month 2012

As someone who at one time suffered from a mental health condition (severe postpartum depression, lasting for close to 18 months after Will was born), I consider National Mental Health Month an important time of the year. With the goal of raising awareness about mental health conditions and promoting mental wellness, Mental Health Month shines a spotlight on the advocacy, education, and services provided by our country’s mental health agencies as well as on the importance of making mental health services available to all citizens.

The American Red Cross provides a great deal of support to individuals suffering from mental health conditions related to traumatic events and disasters like fires, hurricanes, and tornadoes.
