Mental Health Awareness Month - Singing Beyonce 'Halo' Acapella

May 28, 2019

May is Mental Health Month in the US and I wanted to post something about it before the month was up. I was hesitant as I am very aware people will sometimes assume it’s an attention seeking thing... but it’s that attitude that is part of the problem. So I had had to do it regardless of what people may think. Many of us are all too familiar with mental illness, but all too often people are not willing to talk about it. As far as we have come, stigma still exists when it comes to issues like depression, anxiety and other mental illnesses. That is exactly why it’s important to keep taking about it as publicly as we would talk about having a cold. “The frequent attempt to conceal mental pain increases the burden: it is easier to say “My tooth is aching” than to say “My heart is broken.” ― C.S. Lewis, The Problem of Pain Take the time to look after yourself. Stay grounded, be with people who respect you and give you the time of day, don’t let anyone dictate what you can or can not achieve. Mental health is very real and very difficult to navigate through. If someone is withdrawing please don’t judge them, reach out and see if they need help or if they simply just need someone to listen to them. I have been in that place and sometimes find myself back there. Always remember mental illnesses are real, common and treatable! When you’re ready you will find there is always someone there to help you. If you read this far, I love you! ✨🌙 Cleo xx
