I care about a variety of causes. In fact, I usually change up what I support each year. This year, my cause is mental health.
Mental health is important to me because mental health issues cannot always be seen, and often people and businesses are not equipped or knowledgeable enough to help those who suffer from mental illness. The biggest impact funding through the CFC can have on my cause is awareness. There are many different types of mental illness, and helping to shed some light on them is a public service. Working for the Post Office I run into many people who may struggle through everyday transactions due to various reasons. Knowing ways to best communicate can be the difference between a good customer relationship and a bad one.
