In Nigeria, Africa when you say mental health, what people see literally is a. A mad man; b. A Psychopath; c. A mentally disabled person; d. Yaba left; we can go on and on;
But really when you hear Mental Health, what picture does your mind PAINT for you to see? Lately with the different groups advocating for Mental Health and driving awareness amongst the citizens, knowledge has increased beyond what it used to be 3-4 years ago.
Mental health refers to our cognitive, behavioral, and emotional wellbeing - it is all about how we think, feel, and behave. The term 'mental health' is sometimes used to mean an absence of a mental disorder.
Mental health can affect daily life, relationships, and even physical health. Mental health also includes a person's ability to enjoy life - to attain a balance between life activities and efforts to achieve psychological resilience.
Your words are powerful, you are the true manifestation your words.
Your words represent you, they come from your spirit; the innermost deep part of your consciousness; what you say represents you and it shows who you really are.
