Today is Worlds Mental Health Day and I feel like although there have been lots of television specials and millions of tweets from people all over the world, there is still not enough awareness for this extremely important issue.
When speaking about dementia, we usually cover some big parts of mental health. Still, it's a much wider topic that should concern everyone.
It’s definitely a personal concern for me, because every time someone starts the discussion of mental vs. physical illness and how unbalanced perceptions are, I have to think of my mum.
First of all, my mum is fine. She’s doing very well and I know hardly anyone who is as well-balanced as she is. Still, it hasn’t always been like that.
