Mental health doesn't need to be a scary topic. It doesn't deserve the reputation it gets.

Online, in medical settings, in workplaces and in family rooms, mental health has been discussed and batted about like it's an evil curse.

Here's the thing.

Every person has mental health. It's an inseparable part of who we are.

When we treat people with mental health issues like they are broken, that's when stigma appears.

But mental health issues can be good or bad, beneficial or damaging. It's all about the approach.

Explore the mental health categories on the site. You're bound to find something that resonates and can help you make sense of what you're experiencing. It doesn't matter if you haven't given the topic much consideration--mental health is a core part of everyday life.
