Raising mental health awareness


Stephanie Lundry, BHS Journalism

A lot of people have an idea about what mental health awareness is, but it is such a broad topic that you are not able to describe it in only a few words. 

“The topic is so broad, but i would say that it allows everyone else to see and be aware of the struggles of those who have a mental disability,” Kerner said. 

Mental disabilities are a very tricky thing. Sometimes you can’t tell that someone has a mental disability and other times you can tell after talking with them for a bit. 

“Some issues that I have seen are students dealing with stress and not being responsible for your own actions,” Kerner said

“I think that having a class that teaches students how to cope with their mental disability would help,” Kerner said. “I would also like to see that class at the state level.”
