With the pandemic raging in our society and increasing rates of anxiety and depression, there is a greater need for funding of mental health services than ever before. Mental health is not talked about a great deal because of stigma, but it is an issue of great importance in our society. People do not always see high importance for the need of funding mental health services until there is a large-scale mental health crisis, such as a mass shooting or increase in suicides. Then, mental health is in the limelight in a negative connotation, but that can be prevented with education and funding for mental health services in the community.
