May is Mental Health Awareness month, and it’s a good reminder to take a peek into our own mental health, especially in a time and place where we are in a public health crisis. We have learned that our material, fast-paced, competitive culture is not conducive for health and happiness. This awareness inspires us to wake up to what's important--we must shift our priorities and how we spend our time. From a soul level, we are being asked to BE instead of DO.
This month, I want to introduce one of our Self Care Club® members and advocates, Marie Hernandez. A mother of a child with a diagnosed mental illness, Marie shares her story of struggle and how they take care of themselves through the ups and downs of borderline personality disorder.
