Apparently, it’s Mental Health Awareness Week which happens during Mental Health Awareness Month. I must be a bad advocate. I had no idea. I found out through the morning announcements. And, get this, green is the Mental Health awareness color. At least that’s what I’m guessing since they asked us to wear green to support mental health awareness. I’ve always been a little skeptical about all these awareness weeks and months. It seems like every month is something now. That makes them all blend together, so I’m not sure how much awareness they’re creating.
Still, the worst-case scenario is that these weeks aren’t as successful as they hope to be. They certainly don’t do any harm. So, I’m writing a post to help raise awareness of Mental Health Awareness Week. We have the same goal after all. I think I have enough green to wear something green for the rest of the week. If anyone asks me, “Hey, what’s with all the green?” I can tell them all about it. Otherwise, I can try to write a couple or a few more posts.
Are you doing anything for Mental Health Awareness Week? Can you think of anything else I can do? I’m always happy to get feedback.
