About two years ago I was diagnosed with bipolar II disorder.
My life was not a pretty picture leading up to that point, but with the help of mental health professionals along with friends and family, I was able to begin a constructive path towards healing.
But I’m not alone. Almost half of Americans will experience a mental health issue in their lifetime, and the rates are even higher within the LGBTQ community.
That’s why I’m so glad Garden State Equality is hosting a forum on LGBTQ Mental Health & Resilience in honor of Mental Health Awareness Month. Will you join us tomorrow on Thursday, May 28 at 1:30 pm?
During our forum tomorrow, you’ll hear from Garden State Equality’s all-star team of health professionals and licensed clinicians, along with our special guest Dr. David Ford of Monmouth University.
While Garden State Equality is putting special focus on mental health awareness this month, it’s even more important that we all continue that work year round to fight stigma, promote pathways to care, and reduce the mental health disparities in our community.
Thanks for your support.
