Mental Health Fact #1: Did you know that mental health problems are actually very common?
In 2014, one in five American adults experienced a mental health issue.
You guys, I am SO excited (and a little nervous) to start this “30 Days to Lift Away the Stigma” countdown!
Why? Well, this FREE 30 Day Fitness Tip Video series starts our countdown to real [FIT] life‘s first EVER charity event. We’re partnering with MHANY’s to raise money to help Lift Away the Stigma of Mental illness, and I want this to make a real impact.
I talk about the fear of starting new things all the time. Well, this is new territory for me. I want to be able to assist Mental Health Association in New York State, Inc make a real impact in the lives of others, and I can only do that with your help. Lifting away the stigma of mental illness is also a cause that’s personal for me and I’ll be sharing why on Sunday, November 5th, when I share Fitness Tip #8.
I’m sharing these 30 Days or Free Fitness Tips in hopes that you’ll donate SOMETHING in return. Let’s make a REAL difference and let people with mental illness know that we’ve got their backs and we support them.
