Since losing my friend to suicide, I’ve been particularly focused on mental health and in working toward a world where people do not have to suffer in silence.
Last month there was a Facebook post that received more than a million views. I noticed because it was posted by a nonprofit that I advise and it was an order of magnitude more views than usual.
What got all the attention?
The post featured an image with a single simple statement:
“Mental Health is Just as Important as Physical Health.”
The likes and the comments came pouring in. The statement resonated because it’s something that isn’t said or recognized enough.
