First of all, this isn’t a real post. That’s what happens when I research a topic, and find that someone else has written a well crafted article highlighting the information I want to share. PsychCentral Associate News Editor Janice Wood wrote an article discussing how knowledge and beliefs surrounding mental health are improving.
The article Survey Finds More People Willing to Disclose Mental Health Problems begins:
“A new survey has found that people are more willing to disclose having a mental health problem and receiving treatment.
The survey, led by Orygen Youth Health Research Centre in collaboration with the University of Melbourne in Australia, also found improved knowledge and beliefs about mental health problems within the community.
Researchers said they believe this is due, in part, to educational campaigns about mental health.”
This means that people like me, and like you, are making a difference in the world. The knowledge base of the world is growing, and we get to be a part of that. I think it’s just fabulous! You can read the rest of the article here, and I encourage you to do so.
