    During the month of May, awareness is being brought to mental health. When dealing with rare diseases like Friedreich’s ataxia, physical symptoms are often dealt with, but mental and emotional symptoms can be overlooked.

    Caregivers also tend to struggle with prioritizing their mental health. Life is so full of tasks to complete and appointments to attend that making time for yourself can seem impossible.

    Mental health is just as important as physical health. If you find yourself struggling today, reach out to a trusted family member, friend, or counselor for support. You do not need to struggle alone!

    How do you prioritize your mental health?
