Mental Health: To whom it may concern

This is a poem depicting the plight of people going through mental health disorders. It is the year 2021 yet mental health is not taken seriously and patients are often mocked and labelled as being dramatic or attention seekers while they struggle with their disease with no support from friends and family. Being turned away by loved ones while fighting tough mental battles adds to the misery of these people. Most of the time, patients end up committing suicide due to their mental health going down the drain and the constant jeers that they have to face. Hope the world learns to give up ignorance, stop being bitter and extend their support to the people who are in need of it.

To whom It may concern 
How's it been on your end? 
Texts been delayed, 
Calls been none 
Hope you're not mad, hun
 Life's been rough,
 had me shun
 Don't you mind me, 
being hush 
Tried my best, 
couldn't tell
 Been through worse,
 life's been hell 
Anxiety is a myth, 
to it there's no truth 
Depression is a joke,
 oh! How they mock
 No tears have been shed, 
for its in my head 
They made me believe 
that blue is red 
Drowning in blood, 
showing no wounds
 I've been brave
 in this period of gloom 
Tell me, 
how's it on your side? 
I'm sorry, 
been away for a while 
Fought with these emotions, 
gathered the courage to text 
Don't you dare 
think of it as the rest 
Blame me not, 
that I didn't give a hint 
Where were you
 when the lowest I hit?

#MentalHealth Day:

Did you know? World Mental Health Day is observed on 10 October every year, with the overall objective of raising awareness of mental health issues around the world and mobilizing efforts in support of mental health.

The Day provides an opportunity for all stakeholders working on #mentalhealth issues to talk about their work, and what more needs to be done to make #mentalhealth care a reality for people worldwide.


#MentalHealth Awareness Week:

Hosted by the Mental Health Foundation, Mental Health Awareness Week will take place from 10-16 May 2021. The theme is nature and the environment.

We have chosen ‘Nature and the environment’ as the theme for Mental Health Awareness Week 10-16 May 2021!

The evidence is clear that access to nature is crucial for our mental health and millions of people re-discovered that during lockdowns this year. However, this was not the same for all of us. We want to explore what the barriers are and ensure everyone is able to share in the natural world and experience the mental health benefits.

The week will be an opportunity to open our eyes to the power of nature.
