The Ultimate Girl Group
Now this is what I call a girl group Michelle Obama, Kerry Washington and Sarah Jessica Parker are all coming together on the cover of Glamour to support a very important cause. Together the they are working to de-stigmaize mental illness specifically for veterans struggling with Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. About 11 to 20 percent of veterans suffer with PTSD. It is often challenging for veterans to get treamtment due to pre-conceived notions about mental health . Mrs. Obama notes in Glamour, “We have to develop a culture of open arms and acceptance”so every veteran feels comfortable asking for help. Kerry Washington discusses how mental health is as important as physical health "My brain and my heart are really important to me. I don't know why I wouldn't seek help to have those things be as healthy as my teeth. I go to the dentist. So why wouldn't I go to a shrink?" AMEN! Mental health is a difficult subject for everyone to tackle but plays a prominent role is so many lives. Im so happy to see these three amazing women raising awareness for such an important issue.
