May is Mental Health Awareness Month. Every moment of our lives, we should be concerned about our mental health and the mental health of those around us. I spoke with Drew Martel, Director of Crisis Services for Foundation 2 in Cedar Rapids. Help is always available if you need it at 855-581-8111 or at YourlifeIowa.org
Drew spoke about how much further we have to go with mental health awareness (erase the stigma), the symptoms of anxiety, how to help a friend in need, he explains what therapy is like and how we can all better manage our anxiety. Finally, Drew talks about what we still need to do to decrease the suicide rate.
