As many of you know, May is Mental Health Awareness Month. You may struggle with the occasional form of anxiety or depression, but right now, during a pandemic, it is safe to say that millions of people around the globe are experiencing more mental health issues than ever before. For someone like myself who already struggled in these areas, it intensified. But, in other ways, it got better. Millions are out of work right now and that financial burden itself is a strain on many. I wanted to provide you with some Mental Health resources I found online, or some that I have used (or am using). A few of them are specific to the DFW area, but other important resources that anyone struggling can easily access.
