Students recognize National Children's Mental Health Awareness Day

Siobhan Kenny, Chief Executive at Radiocentre, said: "Radio is coming together in a United Kingdom first to shine a light on the important issue of mental health".

"These spiritual practices - while they do not entirely prevent or cure mental illness - can reduce the risk of mental health problems and can assist in recovery".

If you or your organization is interested in being trained in Mental Health First Aid, and joining the fight against stigmatizing mental illness, please contact Lynne Lutze at 563-588-0558.

Though information about mental health will be on hand at each one, project co-ordinator David Gabert says "the focus of these events is to provide opportunities for our community to find new ways to engage in activities".

NAMI reports that mental illnesses are biologically based brain diseases that can severely disturb a person's ability to think, feel, and relate to other people and the environment.

It helps better determine which services should be or need to be offered. "Those living with a mental illness should never bear these burdens alone, nor should their families who struggle heroically to assist their loved ones", the letter said, emphasising that Christians must "encounter them, accompany them, comfort them and help bear their burdens in solidarity with them - offering our understanding, prayers and tangible and ongoing assistance".

The director also reminded people that mental wellness isn't a destination; it's a journey. She said she has already given presentations to the middle school classes this year on healthy relationships and suicide awareness and prevention. Instead of getting angry at myself for that, I have to understand that you're not ever just fixed. "We must respond", the bishop letter said.
