I noticed that people tend to over-react towards the word "Mental health." As much as I hate to admit it, the mental health awareness in our country is extremely low, and that actually further contributed to the vicious cycle of the stigma; stigma creating stigma.
Some people may have someone they trust, but some may not have that privilege. Hence, those people usually ended up keeping everything to themselves, not disclosing anything to others, because afraid being judged as crazy. It's not! Talking to someone else is not a sign of weakness, it is an act of bravery and courage.
I hereby invite all of you, whoever uses this platform, to start conversations and discussions about mental health. I hope we can build a supportive community and a safe space for you to talk about mental health.
