Mental Health Is Everyone,s Business

As someone who lost a cousin due to a mental disorder I know of some of the pain that family and

friends experience daily.The issue of mental issue is often downplayed in many societies and in many

families. Mental disorder can affect an individual regardless of sex, age, colour, religion.

Additionally, the sigma attached to mental health makes it more challenging for those who struggle

with this type of illness to seek help. Depression is only one form of mental disorder which severely

affects the functioning of the brain.We need to be more sensitive to those who struggle with mental

health issues. Reach out today to someone affected and impacted by this disease in an effort to restore

hope to that person. Mental health should be everyone's business.
