October 10th was designated as Mental Health Day. Every day is a mental health day for me when I see my clients try to make their life better despite their suffering.
If you suffer with a mental health illness, don’t hesitate to share your struggles. You may be surprised that your friend, boss, best friend’s daughter or spouse may also be experiencing emotional and mental pain. Successful men and women with a mental illness can be an example to society and can contribute to the idea that a mental disorder does not define the person.
Society needs to understand that a person can be “normal” and still have mental health challenges.
I love Kevin Breel’s Ted talk. He is right on with his message.
Let’s stop intolerance and the stigma!
