So when it comes to navigating mental wellness, we’re often left to teach ourselves by reading articles, chatting with others, or going to therapy.If we had proper mental health education from a young age, maybe — just maybe — we could spare ourselves a lot of heartache, trauma, and mistakes throughout our life.We’d love to know: What’s something about mental health you wish you would have learned sooner?
