Another Push toward Awareness

As usual these days, I’m a little late to the party. This past week was NAMI’s Mental Illness Awareness Week, which provides an easy means toward reminding everyone that Define Functioning is collecting contributions for its first book project.

The project (first announced, conceived, and introduced in May) simply asks one question: What do you want people to know? The responses gathered are being collected into a small publication to be launched in time for next year’s Mental Health Awareness Month (May). The hope is that among the other methods of spreading awareness, we may not only add our voices but that we may also bring attention to the issues and concerns of our particular corner of the MI community.

I will continue to collect responses until the very last moment I can. Until then, feel free to enter contributions into the comments of any post about the project (like this one right here!) or to email them directly to definefunctioning [at] gmail [dot] com. Specific contributions will not be attributed, although credits will be listed (by the screen name under which responses are submitted) at the back of the book.

Thanks again for everyone’s participation!
