I chose to join a hike with HIKE for Mental Health because struggling with mental health is so common, but the stigma makes people feel like they are battling alone. I want to spread awareness while also show that no one has to go through it by themselves.
The outdoors have helped me immensely in healing my mental health. If I can even get one person to experience that, I know it will make a difference.
1 in 4 families is affected by mental illness.
