Awareness – Tools & Resources
Chronic illness, mental illness, and caring for a loved one with illness impacts every aspect of life – faith, families, finances, friendships, education, hobbies, employment and marriage.
DID YOU KNOW? Awareness is an invitation to begin a conversation, to discover radical community, to encourage and build one another up, and to THRIVE in a life with chronic illness.
Quick easy fact sheets can be used with those in your sphere of influence – friends, family, churches, small groups, co-workers and neighbors.
Begin the conversation with the question, DID YOU KNOW? and you will be changing the landscape for more than half of the world’s population who live with chronic physical illness, for the 1 in 5 who live with mental illness, and for all those caring for someone with a chronic physical or mental illness.
Statistics show that either you or someone you love is affected by chronic illness – far more people than most realize.
Together, as we raise awareness, increase knowledge, and utilize educational materials tailored for all who are affected by chronic physical and mental illness, we will also be shattering stigma and isolation, reminding each other and ourselves that while chronic illness is hard, there is hope.
There is always hope.
