THIS MONTH’S FEATURED STORY
“Whispering about mental illness isn’t protecting the person who you’re talking about. It simply perpetuates the idea that it’s not ok... to not be ok. We do not need to talk in muffled tones when we hear someone has depression or anxiety or any other mental illness. I’m guilty of doing this in the past but now I’m practicing speaking about mental health the same way I do physical health. Eg. Jen has IBS and John has depression. Neither of them chose to get sick and neither could have prevented it! You go to the gym to keep our body strong, why shouldn’t we all speak to a psychologist and counsellor to keep our mind strong? Why should we wait until we feel like we are drowning to get help? It’s not weak to speak to someone - it’s incredibly strong. It takes a lot of courage to say: “I shouldn’t have to feel like this all the time. I’m not ok. I deserve more”. I’m grateful for everything my anxiety has taught me and the empathy it has given me. So let’s not whisper about mental health or avoid the topic. It’s perfectly healthy to talk about. Let’s change the conversation! Go have a chat with your doctor if you’ve been struggling with your mental health. Life doesn’t have to feel so hard.”
