The Significance of Mentoring on Mental Health

With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, the importance of having people in your circle that are supportive is even more significant! A group of people that care about how you feel and move through life is an invaluable resource and often they play roles different than your typical family or friend. Other individuals that can support a journey towards improving, stabilizing, or strengthening mental health are people like counselors, therapists, and doctors. Another individual that can be important to your team is having your own mentor, someone who is focused on your personal growth just like everyone else but might be more similar in experiences and knowledge to help you grow. Mentors close in age, experience, and knowledge might be one of the most impactful way to help someone recognize and address their mental health!
