Put Your Oxygen Mask on First
One in four people around the world experience some sort of mental health issue during their lifetime. Yet, mental health and mental illness are shrouded in silence. Meet Truthteller Amy White, a coach to caregivers. When her son experienced a mental health crisis, she experienced the loneliness, shame, and blame that often accompanies mental health issues in our country. Over time, she learned to unravel the blame and began the process of excavating her own soul to make sense of what she was feeling. Today, she supports parents, family members, friends, and other caregivers of those living with mental health challenges, teaching them to stay balanced and healthy. She also tells us how we can reach out to help others every day, and inspires us to represent humanity at its greatest.
