'I can handle this' - Lois take on women's mental health
Women's mental Health Awareness Campaign 💚
"I used to try to always be positive. When times were tough I’d try to convince myself that everything is always ok. But things aren’t always ok. However, every difficult time in my life so far - I have survived. So even if some days aren’t easy, I know that that I will still get through them.
Now, instead of pretending that things always turn out right, I tell myself that no matter what does happen, ‘I can handle this’. I can handle this." Follow her pages: • Insta @lois.chimimba • Twitter @LoisChimimba
#EndTheStigma #Youarenotalone As you know, this month is Mental Health awareness month. Around one in five women have a common mental health problem such as depression and anxiety. While there can be many reasons why these develop, some risk factors affect many women. To commemorate this disease and show that those suffering from mental illness are not alone, we would love for you to be part of our #EndTheStigma campaign. Please would you send us either a video/quote or a short story of your experience dealing with mental illness and how you overcame it. If you wish to stay anonymous, we will post your story without your name. Please include these key words #EndTheStigma and #youAreNotAlone in your post. You can send us your content for this on Instagram or via firstname.lastname@example.org #mentalhealthawarenessmonth #youarenotalone #endthestigma #Malawiangirlsrock
