he-ro /hiro/ noun: a person who is admired or idealized for courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities.

Oxford Languages Dictionary

Abuse screams that you have something for which to be ashamed, and that you are alone. Both are lies. You are not to blame, and you are not alone. Reaching out to find compassion, practical resources, and someone to listen makes you my hero.

Mental health matters. Protecting your mental well-being protects your body, your heart and those you love. For those experiencing a mental health crisis, please know it does not make you “crazy,” “bad” or “weak.” It makes you human. Reaching out for compassion, practical resources and support makes you my hero.
