“Just because no one else can do your inner work for you doesn’t mean you should do it alone.” – Lisa Olivera
Mental Health Awareness Month was started by NAMI, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, in 1949 in the wake of the Great Depression and two world wars. The purpose was and is to raise awareness and educate the public about mental health. It also encourages even those who are not diagnosed with a mental illness to take care of things like their sleep, nutrition, and mental well-being. In that same spirit, we encourage you to ensure you are taking the time and rest you need as you embark on your mental health career. One of the most important pieces of care is infusing yourself and your team with an accredited knowledge base, in order to best serve yourselves and others.
