SAY YES TO HEALTHY MIND – MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS CAMPAIGN
Mental health can simply be defined as the state of well-being in which the individual realizes his/her abilities, can cope with the normal stresses of life, can work productively and can make a contribution to his/her community.
What do we do when some individuals in our society encounter seemingly invincible obstacles towards realizing and living with that level of healthy functionality? Do we shame them into denying their reality?
Mental health is as genuine as any other aspect of a person’s health. When an individual experiences thought or behaviour patterns that negatively impact their quality of life, it is appropriate to address them, just as any other health concern should be addressed. People with mental illnesses are able to recover, but usually only when the problem is confronted and dealt with directly.
We don’t ridicule or stigmatize people with genetic/physiological illnesses, so why should it be so with mental health conditions?
‘Say Yes To Healthy Mind’ is a mental health awareness campaign initiated to raise awareness and educate people about mental health issues and to serve as a forum for constructive discussion on the same.
Today, 1 in every 4 people suffers from a mental illness. It is about time that we normalise mental health talk and end the stigma surrounding it.
Let’s open and say yes to healthy mind!
