During this very busy month of October, we are taking some time to notice that it is also a month focused on mental health. The first week in October was Mental Illness Awareness Week. October 10th was World Mental Health Day. And all of October is World Mental Health Month and Depression Awareness Month. All of these special designations are of course meant to educate people about – and remove the stigma around – mental health concerns. Central Texas neuropsychotherapist Bella J. Rockman LPC, MA told KUT’s Jennifer Stayton recently over Zoom that she thinks we are actually doing pretty well.
