Yes!!!! And we also need to have conversations about the parallel pandemic that is happening right now with mental health stemming from COVID.. As a mental health professional and therapist, I wholeheartedly agree and thank you!. My husband and I love Pete Buttigieg and can see you as a future POTUS. Also love watching you shock those Fox News hosts into silence!. Yes, also, it’d be real cool if the FDA would approve stellate ganglion blocks as treatment for PTSD!. Mental health should be taught in schools. Kids should learn from an early age how to identify and manage emotional challenges. I dont understand why this isn’t a requirement especially for high school aged kids.. Yes!! If we were taught at a young age about boundaries, gaslighting, vulnerability, false pretense and how our culture works against positive mental health, we would never be where we are in this country today.

You take medication for diabetes and no one says a thing. Take meds for depression and you are so judged. Such a double standard. We should not ever be judged for taking care of ourselves. Thank you for recognizing Mental Health Day. Love and Kind… . Mayor Pete, you speak the truth. Lets chat. I’m a student nurse midwife, sufferer of depression, and healthcare advocate. Let’s get this stuff sorted. Enough is enough already.. Mayor Pete, Future President Pete I totally agree with you! I struggle and have been diagnosed with Borderline personality disorder, self harm, major depressive disorder, anxiety disorder, OCD, Add, and PMDD.

Absolutely! I am a therapist in CA and I believe we should be starting teaching about feelings, coping skills and the importance of mental health right from the beginning!. Absolutely! Thank you, Pete, for bringing this to peoples attention and helping to remove the stigma. Your leadership is amazing!. The lack of mental health services, barriers to care and overall lack of support for families is unconscionable.. We need this so badly! Our people are suffering and our children are dying because of it at an alarming rate. Vote Biden and let’s get this country back in the right direction. Thank you Mayor Pete! I appreciate your stance on mental health.. I don’t understand why mental health care isn’t covered by most insurance.

Universal health care won’t “fix” mental health, but it may help alleviate causal stress triggers if we had broader access to quality healthcare *not tied to employment.. Exactly and with Mental Illness also comes addictions!! We have to change peoples mindset and we have to have serious talks with local hospitals about the care or lack of care for addicts!! We need police reform on handling of these individuals!!
