Your brain is an organ just like the rest of your body. And just like the rest of your body, it gets sick. Sometimes it’s sick for a long time and requires more attention than a bandaid. When you combine this reality with the reality that our culture is hyper-focused on the individual, conditioning us to feel we must overcome on our own, it’s no wonder why we can be mentally sick with seemingly no way out.
There is a desperate need to enlighten, educate, and connect with those struggling mentally to help them see a way out. The way out is connection–connections built slowly one at a time beginning with yourself. Life may feel like a lonely island now, but we are here to tell you there is a place for you. Because in reality, it takes a village.
