A staggering 41% worldwide suffer from mental health issues such as depression, addiction, eating disorders, anxiety, and alcohol abuse. The reactions to my participation request for this series were incredibly diverse, ranging from strict refusal to a strong yes. Interestingly, some individuals declined but later accepted when they learned about the "NOT ME" card. These statistics on mental health problems often prompt people to think of others, rather than considering themselves. However, mental health impacts not only the individuals directly but everyone around you. It is never "NOT ME".
