May is Mental Health Awareness Month.
As some of you readers, members, and followers, of Texas Freshwater Fly Fishing may know. I struggle with mental health issues, and will be sharing more about this (and what fly fishing does for me) throughout the month.
I also plan to share the stories of other that have bravely and generously shared with me. I would love to share more stories as well. If you have a seen fly fishing have a positive impact on the mental health of yourself or others around you, and would like to share your story, please reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org. I would love to share your story, as we bring attention and awareness to something that so many keep hidden away. If you would like to talk, but not have your story shared with other. Feel free to reach out to me as well.
To start the month off, here are a couple articles I have written that relate to my mental health struggles and fly fishing:
I hope those articles will inspire others to share their story and struggles. The more we can bring attention to mental health, the more others will be able to find the help they need.
Peace out-side, y'all.
