How do you know if you’re at the wrong type of awareness group? Well, If someone says ‘come on guys, let’s go make people aware of the mentally ill’ and hands you a sign that says “THEY are among US” or “BEWARE of the Mentally Ill.”  Then it’s a sure bet someone just doesn’t get the point of Mental Health Week.
