May 6-12 is Children’s Mental Health Awareness Week. I have definitely felt the impact of misunderstanding of children’s mental health issues in my life. My psychiatric issues started to develop when I was very young. I can tell you from my experience they were not something I ever grew out of. Things just got worse.
I am 26 now and I am finally getting the proper psychiatric care I have needed all along. My life is finally turning around.
