Bears Support Mental Health

For those who know me, know I am a big fan of Chicago.  I have to say, after this play, I am an even bigger fan.  Brandon Marshall, of the Chicago Bear’s, supported Mental Health Awareness Week by playing in green cleats.  Despite the NFL’s possibilities of fines, Marshall stated he will match the fines and make a donation to cancer research.  He is supporting both Mental Health Awareness and Breast Cancer Awareness.  What a quality guy!

Mental Health Awareness Week 2013

This week is Mental Health Awareness Week; Mental health advocates across the country join with others in their communities to sponsor activities, large or small, for public education about mental illness.  I think this is so great to support others and spread the work that people may be suffering and it’s okay and there is nothing wrong with it.  It normalizes it for them so the individual may feel more comfortable to seek the help they may need whether from a family member, a friend, and/or a professional.

I recently heard of a friend from high school who was suffering and did not get the help she needed.  My heart goes out to her family and friends who she touched. People who are suffering don’t realize how much they impoact others and I think it is so important to acknowledge that everyone means something to someone.
