Many of us have no idea what it is like to be actually thirsty. We have plenty of water to drink — even the water in our toilets is clean! Unfortunately, many people around the world do not have that luxury.

I started dieting on May 15, 2020. Welcome to day 84 of my weight loss journey. I lost 9 pounds, but also gained it back. Yesterday, I had less than 1,000 calories all day and did not feel ill. I consider that a breakthrough at this point.
July is National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month.
Mental health conditions do not discriminate based on race, color, gender or identity. Anyone can experience the challenges of mental illness regardless of their background. However, background and identity can make access to mental health treatment much more difficult. National Minority Mental Health Awareness Month was established in 2008 to start changing this.
Taking on the challenges of mental health conditions, health coverage and the stigma of mental illness requires all of us. In many communities, these problems are increased by less access to care, cultural stigma and lower quality care.
