Mental Health Month Day Five

With the gravity of Mental Illness in all human societies across the world, I’m devoting a lot of social media presence to garnering awareness of this often lethal disease. Please support this, forward any information you find useful and educate others by reading and sharing our posts to all those who remain ignorant of this awful disease in a community effort to end the stigma and shame.

  1. Thank you. On my blog I will, every now and then write about my walk of faith which happens to include severe clinical recurring depression and anxiety. Often times, the ” least among us” suffer from mental illness. Sadly, many people with mental illness are incarcerated. Treatment in prison is minimal. Then, when a person with mental illness is released, the cycle starts again. We are now witnessing a trend of people streaming their suicide, as it happens on social media. We also see an extremely high suicide rate among our men and women who served and are serving in the military. Please guide people to professional help and encourage them to seek and and stay in treatment. I also ask our pastors of all denominations to speak about this from the pulpit. Every church, based on statistics will have families struggling with this medically recognized disease.

      1. Oh my heart! The feeling is mutual, you ALWAYS make me feel loved and happy. I’m hoping for the day when I can take off my anonymity and speak my truth without hiding. You inspire me to reach for that ❤

  3. Any information that destigmatises mental health is good. Unfortunately it is still not well understood. Just because there are no physical signs of ill-health does not make it any less serious a condition.
