As mental health advocates, it is important that we encourage other advocates to continue fighting the fight. The discrimination and stigma that come with mental illness is only going to change through education and awareness. Advocates, working together, can show that there is hope and recovery when you have a mental illness.
We need to encourage those who are advocating for us or our fellow advocates.
