Mental Health: Roots and Wings

Keywords: Mental, Health, Depression

Abstract

Mental health is often dismissed. Unless we recognise that mental health is as debilitating as physical health we can never say we are a caring society. Mental health is silent, the stigma attached still prevails and prevents thousands from talking and seek help. Anything that helps and opens a margin of help for them should be encouraged. We need to breakthrough these old rooted stigma and make it a universal message that “Your Mental Health is a priority”.
