Mental Health and Physical Health. The Response Should Be The Same.

May: Mental Health Awareness Month 

LRJ Blog, by Emily Carlson

With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, it is important to bring up the difference in how society treats mental health versus physical health. When someone breaks an arm, people are quick to tell them to feel better and rest. When someone says they are having anxiety, it is often shrugged off and they are told to get over it. Mental health is just as important as physical health, if not more important. If you are struggling with your mental health, it can disrupt your functioning. We need to make sure people take care of their mental health so they are able to carry out daily tasks effectively. Mental health and physical health go hand and hand.
