When asked why mental health education is important to him, Juliano said, “Because I believe it needs to be an everyday issue. With all the talk of the latest on a lot of things society has to offer like politics, celebrities, the latest new piece of technology and all that, mental health awareness does not have the same “significance” as these things. Yet we seem to forget that mental health occurs more than we think. Every minute of our lives is shaped by our own mental health, and an awareness of this in ourselves is not only for us but for being aware of what the rest of society might be going through. Mental health education provides this awareness and is a solution to making this issue more commonplace in our society.
