March is Women’s health month – we focus on women’s mental health. There are some resources for anyone who may be experiencing difficulties, primarily focused on mental health from a woman’s perspective. I encourage you to use the links so you are familiar with the resources mentioned.
Abuse and trauma and the effect these have on mental health are addressed on page 2. We are a society that experiences trauma on a regular basis – as most recently noted a the IAM represented Pratt manufacturing plant in Aurora Illinois. The many types of trauma are defined and the consequences of trauma are identified.
Thank you for always being there for others – it is important!
