Since 1987 October has been designated as Domestic Violence Awareness Month. The entire month shines a spotlight on a serious and sensitive illness facing our Nation.
We seek out professional help in several areas. If we need to fix a vehicle, we seek assistance of an automobile mechanic. If we want to build a home, we consult architects, contractors, and bankers. If we get sick, we look to medical professionals — except when it comes to our mental health. We either avoid the warning signs —thinking we are too strong and can handle the pressures of life without help or we erect other barriers.
As we focus this month on abuse and mental illness, it is well known that these two can coincide. There are also many cases of individuals who have mental illness and live healthy lives with supportive relationships. Mental illness NEVER justifies abuse.

We all like to eat good food, no matter who you are. It is something that our bodies naturally crave. Some people prefer to eat out at restaurants, where others simply prefer eating at home.
