Boston, MA – Feb 16th, 2022 – Longwood Care along with Positive Parenting Initiative have officially launched the #ICAREWEALLCARE national campaign to raise awareness about the mental health issues that have plagued society and quietly affects millions of people. Even in 2022, mental health is still stigmatized and sidelined. With tragic events becoming more prevalent mental health is back in the spotlight, and one can only hope that this tragic event will inspire others to get involved and finally tackle mental health issues as a community.
Anna Svetchnikov, founder of Longwood Care and Positive Parenting Initiative is a licensed marriage and family therapist, and is currently running for Mrs. Florida 2022. She was recently quoted as saying, “Mental health, still a somewhat taboo subject to talk about, has recently been thrust back into the spotlight with the tragic suicide of former Miss USA 2019 Cheslie Kryst. Mental health is a process that requires a mixture of self-care, help from friends, family and professionals. Just like ones’ physical health, when it is neglected it can lead to negative and devastating consequences. It is important for friends and family to form a unit to provide support to anyone that is showing signs of anxiety, worry and depression before it leads to suicide.”
She went on to say, “The isolation experienced by many over the last two years has had a significant impact on individual mental health and has placed undue stress on relationships, with families and even young children developing signs of mental health issues. If you are struggling or find yourself depressed, don’t be ashamed. Speak with your friends, family, and most importantly, find a professional that can help you understand these complicated emotions. There are millions out there that have these same emotions, you are not alone. If we all come together, we can make the world a better place and turn those negative thoughts into positive energy. Resources are available at www.icareweallcare.com and please, don’t give up. The future is as bright as you want it to be.”
The primary goal of the #ICAREWEALLCARE campaign is to create awareness for mental health and to improve access and increase availability to anyone seeking mental health services, resources and support. Untreated anxiety and depression can affect not just emotional but physical health and have life-long effects, with childhood depression more likely to persist into adulthood. To bring change and create a lasting impact it is important to challenge these notions, expand accessibility and create availability. As a society everyone needs to come together to blast away the barriers that are stopping mental health patients from getting the help they need and deserve.
