It is important that we change the culture of this topic and make it ok to speak about mental health and suicide. It’s when the lines of communication are open, the stigma behind it will fade away. Mental illness is real and it’s affects the lives of everyone in the world, both directly and indirectly. If you are living with a mental illness, that’s ok. Its ok to be not ok. What’s important is that you are getting the help that you need. Educate, Embrace and Empower. 

Let's join together and run to raise awareness for Mental Health and Suicide Prevention....
