Brother Post On Social Media A Letter Written By The Professor To His Sister.
“My sister (who is in 9th grade) struggles with depression and panic attacks daily. while in class, she started to have a panic attack and her teacher assumed she was trying to ditch class when she asked to be excused to the office.”
The professor later “found out what had really happened,” so “he wrote this to her.”
The letter reads: ‘Mental health is every bit as important as physical health. I admire and respect anyone with the courage to seek help in order to be more mentally and emotionally healthy.
You are never alone in your struggle, there are always people here for you, so long as you can be open and honest with us. We can work with you and be flexible to make sure you don’t fall behind or get into trouble. We can help make the bad days not so bad.
Stay strong and continue to make progress, bit by bit, each day. Ask for help when you need it and don’t be afraid to fail. It gets better.’
