Mental Health America partnership – #IChooseBeauty Day 970

So excited to announce I Choose Beauty has officially partnered with Mental Health America, and I had a great visit at their national headquarters today! We're teaming up to bring more awareness to mental health and have a few great projects already in the works.And if you're wondering what the bell in this picture is all about, here's the story: "During the early days of mental health treatment, asylums often restrained people who had mental illnesses with iron chains and shackles around their ankles and wrists. With better understanding and treatments, this cruel practice eventually stopped."In the early 1950s, Mental Health America issued a call to asylums across the country for their discarded chains and shackles. On April 13, 1953, at the McShane Bell Foundry in Baltimore, Md., Mental Health America melted down these inhumane bindings and recast them into a sign of hope: the Mental Health Bell."Now the symbol of Mental Health America, the 300-pound Bell serves as a powerful reminder that the invisible chains of misunderstanding and discrimination continue to bind people with mental illnesses. Today, the Mental Health Bell rings out hope for improving mental health and achieving victory over mental illnesses."#mentalhealthmatters #IChooseBeauty Day 971 @mentalhealthamerica
