More people than ever suffer from mental issues. Some struggle just to live while others live ordinary lives where most things are manageable. Whichever category you belong to, or if you are just interested in these issues, we are glad you have found your way here. ❤️
We, the people running this community, have no formal training within the area of mental health or medicine. We do, however, have personal experiences or experience as relatives or friends to people with mental health issues.
What we write here are our personal reflections and experiences. We know that having someone who can listen and relate to your experiences can make a big difference. You are very seldom alone in finding life difficult.
The term ‘Mental Health’ is often associated with things such as depression, anxiety or neuropsychological disorders like ADHD, Asperger's syndrome, autism, Tourette's syndrome bipolar disorder, etc. While these are significant aspects of mental health, the term is defined more broadly as “a person’s condition with regard to their psychological and emotional well-being”, and thus illustrates that mental health can also be positive.
People are often quick to jump to the negatives, but this community aims to celebrate and work towards good mental health, as well as address the wide spectrum of mental health issues.
Once again, welcome! 🙂
