I feel like 2020 has been one of the only times I can remember when admitting you’re struggling with things like anxiety and depression is met with nods of agreement and understanding. That’s an opening for us to continue to talk about mental health issues, of all types, and for people to understand how common it is to need some type of mental health support, whether that be professional, or just supportive friends and family.

On the other hand, I also feel like we all understand that feeling anxious and upset right now is a “normal” reaction to world events, and that having similar issues at another time will be met with skepticism instead of understanding. I hope I’m wrong about that.

In the mean time though, have more conversations around mental health. It will only help all of us feel less alone.
