SALT LAKE CITY May 16, 2016 – Utah Attorney General Sean Reyes issued the following statement regarding National Mental Health Awareness Month:
“Whether we realize it or not, most of us know someone who struggles with mental health challenges or that lives with mental illness. By reaching out to embrace and accept those who struggle with such difficulties, we can each help them on the road to management of mental illness and recovery while hopefully ending any stigma associated with mental health issues.
“So many cases in our office, whether civil or criminal, law enforcement or administrative, impact or are impacted by mental health issues. Throughout this month, and the year, let us reach out with acceptance and kindness to those who struggle with mental health problems and accept them for who they are without letting such struggles define them.”
