“My Philosophy on Mental Health &Wellness”
It takes determination and guts to speak out and to ask for help. No one knows what the people around them are going through. We should, therefore, think before we judge others. My aim through my research and writing is to inform, educate and to help people. I aim to address the stigmas associated with mental health and to enable others to understand the challenges many people with mental health issues face on a daily basis. I myself have struggled with grief and feel I can use my experiences to relate to others going through their own internal battles. I take a real pride in being able to use my position to help improve the lives of others.
