Lets Talk About It

Art therapy care holding hands - with Heather Caruso at Art Therapy Guelph in Ontario.

I never realized how judgemental people are against folks who need mental health support until I became an art therapist. We have to normalize getting support when we need it rather than suffering in silence. The stigma seems to be attached to the notion of a judgemental mental superiority feeling that people project onto others. Meanwhile it is merely their ignorance about what it means to reach out for help rather than "toughing" it out. Ignore these people and reach out for support.
