Mental Health Media by Mental Health Professionals
An important part of PsychoSocial's mission is to create and bring you mental health media content. By doing so, it is our hope that we are bringing awareness about the importance of mental health. Even in this day and age the stigma around mental health is still present. Yet, we have made great strides in our understanding and have taken steps to acknowledge the importance of keeping not only a healthy body, but also a healthy mind. However, we still face many obstacles such as lack of accessibility, affordability, and culturally accessible services. PsychoSocial strives to bring attention to these obstacles and continue our mission to #EndtheStigma
