National Semicolon Day

Millions of people are suffering from “invisible illnesses” all over the world yet somehow we can’t wrap our heads around this huge issue, there is still a major stigma, and an incredible lack of resources in the United States and elsewhere for people struggling with mental illness. Tomorrow is my father’s birthday. He would have been 59, but his story unfortunately came to an end way too soon. As long as I am on this earth I will make sure I am advocating for mental health awareness and trying to do my part in ensuring that this does not have to happen to another family. The statistics are gut wrenching. Today is National Semicolon Day. I’m so appreciative that there are movements out there such as this one shedding light and working to remove the stigma associated with mental health disorders🖤
