mental health

From a young age, we learn the importance of plastering a cut. We practice playing doctors and nurses; attempting to cure any ailment (real or imaginary) our parents may have had with our bandages and a plastic stethoscope. As we grow older, we develop the skill of empathy. We can walk in another’s shoes, understanding how someone feels when they have a stomach ache or flu, observing the physical disabilities people suffer from. We empathize with people and try to help them recover as best as we can.

We all know the vital importance of good health. So why does this all seem to disappear when it comes to mental health?

When you speak out, when you find the courage, to be honest with yourself and others – you will NEVER regret it. We are all human. We all have good days and not so good days. So we are inviting you right here, right now, to be honest.
