Why this topic, you might ask.

Just to start…mental health is personal and very real to me. In fact, I found out that 1 out of 10 people, globally, as we speak, is suffering a mental health crisis, and the number is even worse in the U.S., at 1 in every 5 persons.

–National Institute of Mental Health (NIH)

What does that mean to you? Well, if you’re in a room of 5 or fewer, that means someone in the room is having a mental crisis. In addition, 1 in every 5 persons in our country is also a caregiver to a person suffering from a mental or physical challenge. 

–National Institute of Mental Health (NIH)      

I say all of that to say, mental disorders aren’t always readily seen in the way physical disorders are. I encourage all of us to learn the symptoms of mental health and to pay attention to what we can observe. In the process, you might save the life of someone you love, or maybe, even, your own.

It’s also appropriate to seek professional help, during this observation period.

Throughout the month, “Dishing with Patricia” will add to a series of presentations by mental health experts, including “whole body” health providers, its own series of round-the-clock social media public service announcements.

The content will be drawn from a variety of other mental health professionals and advocates, as a means of spotlighting the various aspects of the growing, regional, and global mental health challenge.

We have also created a designated mental health tab on my website:

You can follow our “Focus on Mental Health” on our Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter pages; and/or subscribe to my Dishing with Patricia YouTube channel. 

I hope you can join us, for our upcoming episodes.
