I rarely write about work here. In fact, people who don’t know me in real life sometimes ask me if I have a job. I assure you I do – a full time one. I run a Mental Health America affiliate in my county. It’s a job that offers tremendous potential to be involved in people’s lives in a meaningful way. I like it on many different levels.
There are more than 300 affiliates around the country and at the moment we’re all engaged in a research project that’s pretty interesting. Anyone can participate in it and it’s pretty quick – about 10 minutes. No personal information is gathered – they’re not even asking for your name.
We’re surveying people to find out attitudes about mental wellness throughout the nation. What we learn will help shape our messages and determine our focus as we encourage people to be mentally well.
You can participate and help us out by taking the survey at the link below. Feel free to forward it to family, friends, coworkers, or anyone else you can think of.
