I often say to my patients that if you have a brain, then you will have a mental health issue. It is a matter of degree. Once we can recognize that all of us have a "Mental Health", just like all of us have a "Physical Health", then we'll be more abled to look after it rather than waiting too late before we seek help. In order for us to change the stigma of mental health, we need to change the way we think about the words, "Mental Health".
Mental health management is not just for the mad, bad or sad......It is for everyone!
Underneath it all, if you dig deep enough, we are all the same......
