This week is National Suicide Prevention Week.  Friday is World Suicide Prevention Day. 

I have not been affected by suicide issues, but it is known that people like myself, with a Mental Illness, are more likely to be affected with suicidal thoughts and/or tendancies. Please consider writing LOVE on your arm today! I am trying to raise awareness for Mental Illness & suicide prevention!

I suffer from Bipolar Disorder. 
It is a psychiatric diagnosis that describes a category of mood disorders defined by the presence of one or more episodes of abnormally elevated energy levels, cognition, and mood with or without one or more depressive episodes. 

Let me tell you that it is NO joke.  It is not about just being happy & then sad.  I am one of the cases where I am highly functioning, but there are some who can barely cope with life.  I use my crafts to cope in many ways.

Mental Illness has a very negative stigma that needs to be erased.  I want to help in any way I can.  Today is National Write LOVE on Your Arm Sept 8th to recognize National Suicide Prevention Week.  So, I wrote LOVE on my arm!

Will YOU write Love on your arm?
