May is Mental Health Awareness month, an opportunity to address the stigma around mental illness. The term “mental health” is a bit silly because every human has “mental health.” But semantics aside, the term is typically used to refer to a person’s wellbeing.
For us, ending the stigma is incredibly important. Leah’s background is disability rights and has spent her life professionally and personally connected to people all along the spectrum of mental illness.
