Mental Health Awareness

"You may say I'm a dreamer
But I'm not the only one
I hope someday you will join us
And the world will be as one . . .

John Lennon & Yoko Ono


You learn something new every day . . . month . . . year . . . right? Well, this month I learned that May has been observed as Mental Health Awareness Month since 1949!

My niece writes a blog at devoted to making mental health a non - taboo topic. With May drawing to a close, she has posted an essay on how to displace persistent negativity with independence and confidence, and appeared as a guest blogger on, courageously sharing her autobiography.

My personal tendency is to try dealing with these issues via literature. On the outside chance that someone might something useful here, I will re - share a few of my previous attempts to do so:

Don't Ruin My Birthday!

Dark Within Dark Within Dark

SSRIs & Walking Upright

Never Fear

Although Mental Health Month 2019 is ending, World Mental Health Day will be here on Monday, October 10, 2019. Here's to an entire year of re-newed mental strength as we make our way forward, boldly doing better than we have done before.

  1. Each year millions of people around the world face the reality of living with a mental illness. The COVID-19 pandemic has had a profound impact on the mental health of people of all ages. Now, more than ever, it is critical to reduce the stigma around mental health struggles, because that stigma often prevents individuals from seeking help. May is celebrated as Mental Health Awareness Month around the world and we at Tava Mitram also prioritizes spreading the awareness of Mental Health and mental wellbeing through diffirent initiatives and activities.
