Please Save These Mental Health Resources Available in #RochMN
The first thing I want to say is...if you are in crisis and need immediate emergency assistance, call 9-1-1 or Crisis Response of SE Minnesota at (844) 274-7472. The second thing I want to say is you are not alone dealing with depression, anxiety, bi-polar, or a ton of other mental health issues. You're not broken, you're not weird, you're not a mistake, and you deserve respect and love just like everyone else. It is easy to think and feel like you don't matter, but. You. Matter.

There are so many "national months of...", why does Mental Health Month matter? One in five Americans is affected by mental health conditions, but many won't talk about it because there's still stigma attached to mental illness.
