May is Mental Health Awareness Month and it ends in just a couple of hours. Although Mental Health Awareness Month is over, mental illness never ends. There are always people who are suffering or who have family or friends who are suffering. The National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI) reports that 1 in 4 people experiences mental illness in any given year.
Here at Little Merry Sunshine, I've dedicated 5 of my 14 posts in May (including this one) to the topics of mental health and mental illness. They've been some of the most personal posts I've written in my seven years as a blogger.
