Today's highlighted action is mental health. Arguably mental health is an "action" that should be focused on daily for all of us, because mental health as an action item essentially means prevention- prevention of negative outcomes. Today's action is to think about what you can do to foster emotional health and to educate yourself (and others) about the relationship between our mental health and gun violence.
As the CEO of the American Psychological Association said in 2014, "Given that
most people with mental illness do not harm or threaten others, continuing to frame the conversation about gun violence solely in the context of mental illness does a disservice both to the victims of violence and those who suffer from mental illness. More important, it does not direct us to appropriate solutions."
