Today, the 10th of October 2014, marks World Mental Health Day.
Why is mental health still such a stigma?
Chances are you know at least one person who has mental health issues, but you may not actually know because they are ashamed to talk about it.
The recent death of the much loved Robin Williams caused everyone to start talking about it, but why should it take for somebody – anybody – to die, in order to start talking?
The post I wrote last year I did so with ease; I wrote it because even though I wasn’t suffering at that time, I wanted people to talk.
This post, I’m feeling a little overwhelmed with.
Recently I’ve been having some pretty low days.
I haven’t posted about it here yet as I’m trying to cope. I’m trying to battle.
I have been talking though. Talking to friends.
I may talk about it openly again on here soon.
But for now, I just want to tell you, if you are reading this and you think you may be depressed, or suffering anxiety, anything to do with your mental health, then please…
It’s time to change.
It’s time to talk.
It’s time to end mental health discrimination.
