Be Mental for a Month: getting ready for mental health awareness month
Posted Mar 18 2010 9:51am
Mental Health Awareness month has always been busy time of year for me. One way or an other I would work with support groups and other organizations to do something during the month to get people talking about mental illness and way that we can make things better and safe for people living with the.
In 2008 I started the annual Mental Health Humor’s project Cartoon-A-Thon. Last year I drew 31 cartoons for every day of May’s Mental Health Awareness month. This year I’ll be putting my skill to the test! I’m going to draw caricatures of 31 Mental Health Hero’s. The goal is to have 20who will sponsor a day. That will be do via an other domain. Then I’ll pick 13 Mental Health Hero’s to draw for free. They will get their caricature posted on all my sites and even get a free page to tell their mental health recovery story.
Over the next month I’ll be working on getting ready for mental health awareness month. What will you do during the month to bring some light to mental illness?
