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.
