With the release for Season 2 of 13 Reasons Why, and mental health awareness week earlier this month, it’s worth opening up a discussion around mental health. While mental health is a widespread issue which doesn’t discriminate regardless of gender, sexuality, race or class, we wanted to focus this week on how these illnesses can lead to crushing poverty.
This week, try speaking to a homeless person when you see them, ask how they are rather than if they’re okay. You can read more on this at My Name Is Human Project and see how they are getting everyday people to help alleviate homelessness and poverty.
If time isn’t on your side why not donate to ATD 4th World an international not-for-profit which aims to alleviate poverty worldwide and have been doing so for over 60 years.
