Mental Health Awareness Week: Welcome & Schedule!

Hi everyone! I was dabbling with the idea of doing a Mental Health Awareness week for a little while but wasn’t sure how to conduct it but after weeks of planning and brain-storming, we finally made it so welcome to Mental Health Awareness week on Jenny in Neverland! It’s not going to be all doom and gloom – as an avid mental health advocate, I think it’s so incredibly important to be able to talk freely about these issues and not feel judged or embarrassed by doing so and anything to help bring that to light and help rid the stigma of these awful conditions is all gravy in my books! For the next week, we’re going to have lots of posts – one from myself and the rest from some amazing bloggers and authors, all of which are covering different topics regarding mental health.

Mental Health Awareness Week on Jenny in Neverland

All I ask of you this week is to be open and honest about whatever you’re feeling and going through. If you’re suffering but haven’t taken the step to tell anyone yet, let now be the time you do it. Get yourself the help you deserve, challenge yourself, do something that might scare you, help a friend who’s going through a difficult patch, be honest with yourself and how you’re feeling and rid yourself of any negativities in your life that are bringing you and your precious mental health down. Share your stories and help bring society one step closer to accepting mental health conditions more freely and taking them more seriously.
