May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Depression, anxiety, and other mental health conditions impact 1 in 5 adults every year. That is why, since 1949, May has been recognized as Mental Health Awareness Month.

Whether you are a trial attorney, a truck driver, or a teacher, you can be susceptible to these painful and sometimes debilitating conditions. They can emerge slowly or suddenly.

Unfortunately, the stigma surrounding mental health is significant — especially for men. All too often, those who suffer remain silent, fearing the shame of being perceived as weak or faulty.

If you are struggling, please summon the courage to reach out to someone you trust. Asking for help does not mean that you are helpless. It means that you are human.

The first step may be terrifying, but it is necessary for finding long-term relief. Trust me. I am “1 in 5 adults.”

And I am someone who cares.

Yours in support,
Brian / Mr. Bishop 🙂
