Many teenagers suffer from mental illness, and the number is ever-increasing. By educating the population about mental illness from a young age, we can create a broader support-network for those with mental illness, and let them know that they are not alone. Removing the stigma surrounding mental illness leads others to understand that mental illness is not something to fear.
The issue of educating the public about mental health may seem overwhelming and elicit feelings of helplessness from those who feel that there is nothing that they can do to help. But that's not true. By donating to NAMI, you can help those with mental illness obtain the support they need. I encourage you to donate to NAMI. When you read the news and are heartbroken by the headlines that are now so commonplace in newspapers and journals everywhere, do not complain about the political parties and failing governmental system: be proactive. The amount doesn't matter; every dollar donated to the cause makes a difference. Be a part of the solution; not the problem.
Oftentimes, we have no idea of the effect our actions have on those around us. Our actions have consequences, and the smallest interactions can cause a butterfly effect. I encourage you, if a friend or family member seems to be struggling with a mental illness, or even having a bad day, be caring; be empathetic; be kind.
“it is an odd paradox that a society, which can now speak openly and unabashedly about topics that were once unspeakable, still remains largely silent when it comes to mental illness.”

Through projects like, "Time for a Change”, we hope to educate the population about mental health; if the American people are unable to discuss the issues which seem too frightening or tremendous to solve, the problem will become worse. Organizations like NAMI are proactive about education. Through speeches at schools and active political campaigning, NAMI actively seeks to eradicate the stigma of mental illness and provide support for those in need.
"mental health needs a great deal of attention. It’s the final taboo and it needs to be faced and dealt with."
