My last post was about my small war to end the taboo that surrounds mental health. I am happy to report that I have a won a battle. Out of the blue, an old classmate of mine wrote to say that reading my article had given her the final little nudge she needed to call a psychologist for help. Like me, the idea had been wandering in her mind for a while and also just like it was the case for yours truly, she now realizes she should have made that call years before.
It’s got me thinking : If every time one person came clean about their mental health issues, one other person got the strength to ask for help, we’d slowly, steadily and all together win this war and the world would be that much more the saner.
