“My Philosophy on Mental Health & Wellness”
The stigma attached to mental health and wellness has kept many from getting the help they need. The only way this can be overcome is to educate individuals. So many people suffer, all because they don’t understand their own mental health and are ashamed to ask for help, thinking they are all alone. In reality, there are thousands of others out there going through the same struggles.
I believe that initiatives like BetterHelp will play a key role in overcoming this stigma, as they keep getting help a private matter and remove any elements of embarrassment or shame. As more of us get the help that we need, we will become happier and healthier individuals, and hopefully, one day, we will liberate future generations from this stigma.
