Truly EPIC Organization

(Page 2 of 2)

One of my dearest friends from when I lived in North Carolina, who worked hard for many years on his mental health challenges, finally lost his personal battle and, to this day, it has shaken and shaped his friends and family members.

And finally, the statistic that is a show-stopper whenever I share it at a caregiving event: researchers at Stanford University have discovered that 40 percent of family caregivers for loved ones living with cognitive disorders will die from stress-related disorders before their loved one dies.

The mission of the Mental Health Association is dedicated to promoting mental health and victory over mental illness and related challenges through education, prevention, advocacy, research and empowerment.

So, if you are in the area, please join us next Wednesday. If not, please support your local MHA as they work so hard to support you and your community.
Oh, yes. The tears they will be aflowin’.
