"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 saraswayforward.com 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 okamiandco.com, 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:
Dark Within Dark Within Dark
SSRIs & Walking Upright
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.
