Seeing as this is my first blog, I’d like to use it to help and inspire people regarding mental health issues. As a sufferer, I am prone to the current stigma which surrounds mental health and the poor misconceptions people tend to have of it. We live in a modern day society where things are forever growing and improving over time – yet the world we live in also turns a blind eye to serious issues which tend to be overlooked, including mental health. In my opinion, this is no longer an option. We NEED to use our knowledge and educate others in doing the same, educate others into what mental health illnesses really involve and the heart-breaking, devastating impact they have on millions of people’s lives. Because until we do so, people will not get the help and understanding they need in order to recover, suicide rates will increase and statistics will be on the rise, due to a lack of compassion and interest.
I also wish to spread the message of Veganism and animal rights – I am strongly passionate about these subjects and I believe in speaking up for those who cannot speak up for themselves and I believe that we do not need to torture animals and put them through hell, in order to have a good life.
I’ll be doing a post about the common misconceptions of Mental Health in following weeks/upcoming blog posts and of course, animals rights/veganism. So please stay tuned!!
