On July 10-15, join the Heart Project for Mental Health Awareness. Draw the hearts on your wrist that apply to you then photograph it and share it on your wall. This is to spread awareness, to not hide behind the shame and stigma. Hashtag it #TheHeartProject.
I want to challenge everyone out there to post a picture of yourself with your hearts! If you don’t suffer from a mental illness that’s ok, just draw a dark blue heart for support!
While there isn’t a specific heart for PTSD, if you suffer from that condition, please feel free to create your own color. I think I’m a little too old to be drawing on myself (plus, I can’t draw), but here’s my Blue Heart for support. 🙂
