Ryan Reynolds Gets Candid About His 'Lifelong' Struggle with Anxiety: 'I Know I'm Not Alone'

"I know I'm not alone and more importantly, to all those like me who overschedule, overthink, overwork, over-worry and over-everything, please know you're not alone," he continued. "We don't talk enough about mental health and don't do enough to destigmatize talking about it."

May is Mental Health Awareness Month.

1 in 5.

The number of people who will be affected by mental illness in any given year. This person is sitting next to you. This person is living in your house. This person is a part of your family. This is you. Even if this disease is not yours to fight, you are impacted by knowing and loving someone who is.

A semicolon. A pause. An indication of connection between sentences. Often causing confusion yet important to empathize relationships. A pause to let the reader know there is more to the story.

The semicolon can be described as stronger than a comma but weaker than a period. An apt description. However the semicolon is more than just this. It continues the sentence where a period could be placed.

And I am stronger than depression and anxiety. I am more than what it tells me I am. It will not be my ending period. My disease makes me pause in my day. It makes me stop and care for myself. But it doesn't end me. I have more to my story. And so do you. Share it. Talk about it. Reveal it. Display it.

There is no shame. Don't let it become your end. Let it be a part of your story. One that you overcome everyday.

Support your 1 in 5. Show them that you see them. You hear them. You love them. Show them that their disease does not make them less of a person.

My name is Katie.

I am 1 in 5.

Eyewitness News Investigates: The Silent Struggle

"ABC11 kicked off Mental Health Awareness Month with Eyewitness News Investigates: The Silent Struggle.

The half-hour of special coverage explored COVID-19 loss to loneliness and repeated racial trauma.

Then, in a town hall conversation called the "Silent Struggle," Amber Rupinta and a panel of experts answered questions including how to cope with grief and how to talk to children who are struggling during the pandemic."

This is America: Why we need to validate each other's pain

"Pain is universal. And yet pain is so often what we disbelieve, discount, diminish – in ourselves and in one another. We minimize pain so we can avoid conversations about injustice. We fail to cope with pain that can have violent consequences. Our reluctance to sit with one another's pain costs lives (many suicidal people I've interviewed say when they were suffering and reached for help, it simply wasn't there)."

Pain is universal, yet we're intent on turning away from it.

Prevention begins and ends with parenting. Children of parents who engaged in parenting behaviors and practices generally recognized as supporting their healthy development rarely hurt themselves and others. The Centers for Disease Control, the American Academy of Pediatrics, the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and the National Institute of Mental Health should be working furiously to find ways to improve the overall quality of parenting in the U.S. Perhaps parenting education campaigns akin to the smoking and seatbelts campaigns of the past. Visit www.advancingparenting.org. In our own unique way we have adopted this approach to primary prevention. Please share. 🙂
