For the last 10 years, October has been designated as Bullying Prevention Awareness Month. As this important month draws to a close, I wanted to write a quick post with some information and links for those in need, as well as some thought provoking questions related to this topic.
Many years ago, Mental Health America designated the month of May as "Mental Health Month." The purpose of this is to bring awareness to the public about mental illness and to inform everyone that treatment is available. Many other organizations, such as NAMI (National Alliance on Mental Illness) also promote this month as a way to provide education and hopefully reduce the stigma that is still present regarding mental illness.
