Twinkl asked me, "What more can be done to increase mental health awareness?"
Here's what I shared with them...
We must deep-sow the idea that just like nobody has perfect physical health throughout their life, people also have periods of poor mental health. Just like we are not ashamed to discuss our physical ailments, we should also not be afraid to discuss the mental ones. We must give our minds the same respect, care and treatment that we give our bodies.
This of course is a much longer discussion, but Twinkl wanted a snappy 60-worder. Check out their link to hear what other mental health professionals and advocates have shared and keep coming back here to the ever-flowing stream of ideas, thoughts and solutions to improve our mental health.
