Atlhough the stigma that has been attached to mental health issues for so long does appear to have lessened, the batlle for acceptance, compassion and understanding remains. Anyone can suffer from mental health issues (your partner, your child, your boss, your friend, yourself), and just because it’s never happened to you yet doesn’t mean it never will. There will be times in life when it all feels like a struggle, and, hopefully, others when it seems wonderful and easy going. So how do you view your mental health? Do you pay attention to how you’re feeling and behaving? I think if we can cultivate a sense of interested inquiry into our own, and others’, state of mind or mental health that will allow us to take steps towards finding what we need to function as well as we possibly can.
