A to Z Challenge 2019 ( #MentalHealthAwareness)

This time I have chosen MENTAL HEALTH AWARENESS as my theme.

Though May is the month for mental health awareness, I thought April would be a good time to talk about it and at a widespread global platform like A to Z Challenge.
 
Mental Health is one of the four pillars of health and in our part of the world still riddled with deep stigma, taboo and lack of awareness. 

Being a depression survivor myself and also an Oesteoid Oesteoma and Fibromyalgia survivor,both Chronic Invisible Illnesses that have huge mental health implications, I think it is time we start building safe and non-judgmental spaces in India to talk about mental health.

I think it was only appropriate that I use my blog and the platform of #AtoZ to speak about mental health and contribute in my own small way towards awareness.




My aim by attempting this challenge is to reiterate:


  • Mental health issues are as important as physical health challenges.
  • Anyone young, old, rich, poor, male, female, educated, illiterate can be presented with mental health challenges.
  • Most survivors of mental health issues can be normal, productive members of society if provided proper treatment to cure or control their condition.
  • All survivors of mental health issues should be treated with dignity due to any human being and same empathy as we extend to any physically ill person.
