California’s Mental Health Movement is made of up millions of people who believe that everyone experiencing a mental health challenge deserves the opportunity to live a healthy, happy and meaningful life. See what people are saying and sharing – and add your voice to the movement with your own commitment to advancing mental health.
I want to inspire others, make them feel like they’re not alone because, and now I’m talking to you, you truly aren’t. There are so many people that love you and care about you. One day things will get better, maybe not today nor tomorrow but one day. And trust me when I say this, you are worth it. You are worth everything there is because all life is precious, including yours.
As an RN in the primary care setting, I work in collaboration with all members of our health care team to ensure that all our patients are adequately screened for signs and symptoms of depression at all visits to our clinic, and I plan to order green ribbons to wear everyday (personally) and to encourage staff to wear as well - to promote mental health awareness and work together to de-stigmatize mental health illnesses and promote wellness and recovery through support and using the proper resources to get people the help they need.
I am strengthing the mental health movement. I believe in healing through action, power through diversity and power through collaboration, everyone deserves the opportunity to live a healthy happy productive life, people experiencing mental health challenges can and do get better by talking openly and honestly about mental health. We can help make this possible together we can!
