10/10 World Mental Health Day…. A day that highlights the importance of understanding our journey. Mental health as a topic, is quite complex for a lot of people and to quote Danny Frawley “the worst part about having a mental illness, is that people expect you to behave as if you don’t!”
The hardest part of recovering and getting help is that people think as soon as you have talked to your doctor that you are all better. Learning to live and evolve with your mental health journey is where the hard work really starts.
We need to invest the time, the energy and the resources into creating a supportive and inclusive environment, ensuring the person of ill health is not judged, is not ignored and is not ridiculed. As a community we need to play our role in highlighting the importance of self care and also to connect with our immediate support network.
On Mental Health Day, Love Me Love You are encouraging you to join in our social campaign of awareness and support called “Love Me Love Your Mate”
Being involved is easy, just share a photo of yourself with your hand symbolising the 5 members of your mental health support crew and tag them so that they are acknowledged for making a difference in your life!
This will be another small gesture in normalising the check in behaviours to our community of support. Be aware of who they are, acknowledge your support being there at all times and then action the behaviour of seeking support and talking
1 in 5 Australians live with a diagnosed Mental Illness and we need your need help to create an environment that ensures No One Travels Their Journey Alone….
