Mental health/illnesses are rising everyday and services are growing at a rapid pace, however when the demand is so high and supply becomes full, we become the band-aid society. What does that mean?
When issues are only dealt with on a surface level .
What happens if we continue to band-aid? We continue to see the same stigma, the same struggles over and over and over again with no resolution.
At Embracing Empowerment we truly believe “peeling the onion (layers) ” meaning, getting to the “root” of struggles is the only way to reduce stigma and help those who continue to struggle with their own mental health/illness.
Trauma changes people, period. To understand that every struggle has a root, and in order to omit or diminish the pain we must understand the wounds within.
