Mental Health Awareness Month//B4Stage4

May is mental health awareness month. Mental health is something I am passionate about for 2 main reasons. I am currently pursuing my bachelors in psychology therefore I have studied mental health and have seen how devastating it can be when untreated. The second and biggest reason is because I myself suffer from severe anxiety and panic disorders. I was diagnosed 13 years ago and still struggle today. I have decided that because this is something I am so passionate about that I want to bring as much awareness to it as I can. Over the course of the month I plan on highlighting different campaigns going on this month for mental health awareness.

The first one I want to discuss is being organized by Mental Health America. Their theme for this years mental health awareness campaign is B4Stage4. Stage 4 is when mental health symptoms are the most severe and have the longest recovery process. However most people don’t take the time to get help until they have reached stage 4.
