14 Stories About Mental Health That Will Help With Your Awareness

| Right | October 10, 2021

Dear readers,

Mental health is a tricky subject to talk about. Many people suffer mental health issues but very few seem to be aware of it. Many countries around the world host Mental Health Weeks, and most of those culminate in today, World Mental Health Day.

The purpose of World Mental Health Day is to increase education on mental health topics and through increasing awareness, hopefully, eliminate the stigmas attached and encourage sufferers to seek help and support.

To do our part, we’ve rounded up fourteen stories from our archives that deal with mental health in various ways. Some of these are through good-natured humor, others in highlighting what mental health conditions can do to employees in the workplace, and how support is vital!

We hope you find these stories educational, but most importantly, if you think you need to talk to someone about your mental health, please don’t hesitate! Reach out; there are many organizations out there who are willing to listen and guide you.
