Do you feel overwhelmed by the state of the world today?
Do you believe that since people in powerful positions don’t understand mental illness or care about people who are ill, why should you bother?
I feel that too.
But I see people every day doing great things. As a freelance writer, I interview inspiring people all the time. Recently, I talked to a guy who is making real changes to improve the health of his community.
That’s what we need now. More positive stories. Taking action. Taking care of ourselves. There are always things we can do. Don’t lose hope!
