"I never knew the power of choice, until I learnt to say "No". I felt inadequate around others until I started enjoying my own company. I always worried about being good enough for others until I started listening to what made me feel good. I can go on and on. But I believe good mental health is a product of self-love. And when I figured this out, my life began to transform. Lets #EndTheStigma and openly talk about our experiences with mental health. Trust me, #youAreNotAlone If you're not sure of what mental health is and/or how to take care of it, I recommend that you start with loving yourself. Fully and deeply. Yours truly Iam Boosie"
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 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
