I whole heartedly support the Max Foundation’s efforts to raise awareness of and bring attention to mental wellness. There is zero shame in asking for help and it’s imperative that we break the negative stigma associated with mental health. When someone breaks a bone, they immediately seek help; I look forward to the day where this is true for not just the physical pain, but the mental and emotional pain as well.
These efforts that the Max Foundation will spearhead and bring to the youth are crucial for helping kids, and adults, understand the battle and then successfully fight it. Every child needs to know they are loved, valued, and significant. I stand alongside the Max Foundation to let all kids know they’re not alone and we’ll fight together for the mental well being of all.
