Ever hear the statistic, "1 in 4 people will have a mental illness"?
How does that make you feel.
Now, do you ever think about who the other three quarters of people are? Or, how one might cross over from being the 1 in 4, to the 3 out of 4? There's a lot of layers here....and the complexity of mental health shouldn't be reduced to an oversimplified statistic, or used to draw a crowd in attempts to normalize it's depth.Indeed, we are all on spectrum of mental and physical disability depending on the conduciveness of our environment and access to systems of care. It's not a matter of who is ill, so much of where we are on a our relative spectrums of wellness and illness across time and space.
