Mental Health Awareness Month

Leah from Uncorked Thoughts and Ula from Blog of Erised are hosting Mental Health Awareness Month from the 1st until the 30th of June 2014.

Mental Health issues are more prevalent than ever and yet support, awareness and information about the ways in which mental health issues can affect you if you suffer from them personally, or how they can affect you if a loved one or friend suffers from them, is rarely openly available. Unfortunately, Mental Health is still stigmatised, even though the most recent statistics show that 1 in 4 adults will suffer from some form of mental health problem in their lifetime.

Mental Health Awareness Month in the blogosphere will include reading, discussing and reviewing books that focus on the topic of mental health and explore the wide variety of issues associated with it. Leah has put together a list for inspiration (and the twitter tag #MHAMJune will be used in discussions):
