Did you know that Oct. 6 through Oct. 12 is Mental Illness Awareness Week? It is a week to think about the impact of mental health on our society. The week was established in 1990 by the U.S. Congress to educate and increase awareness of mental health.

It is a time to reflect on our emotional well being. How do you handle everyday tasks? How do you feel about yourself and your interactions with others?
