World Mental Health Awareness Day
Posted on October 10 2018
I have two children. And I continuously ask myself: how can I protect them without being overprotective... how can I push them without being too pushy... how can I build their self confidence and resilience so they don't succumb to society's pressure (over looks, weight, money...).
But I need help too. I need help so I can help them. Our schools need help. Our teachers need help. Support, tools, workshops, training.
I hereby ask our governments, our councils, our departments of education, our departments of health, our schools, our teachers, our professionals... to please help us. Help us change the stigma over mental health. And help us to help our children, the next generation of our nation, be more resilient.
