Mental Health is just not something that deteriorates all of a sudden, but progresses with time. The onset of mental health problems is a crucial time, which may not be understandable in the beginning. The DEPRESSION or STRESS we faces in our life have a huge impact of our MENTAL WELL BEING.

Though a lot of awareness is created through different forums, yet MENTAL HEALTH PROBLEMS are stigmatized, which makes it difficult for the suffering person to seek help. People who suffer are reluctant to speak about their problems because of embarrassment, or because that they will be stigmatized as MENTAL or they have to face humiliation.

We can bring in a positive change just by being more open and accepting without judging a person, just reach out to the people who are suffering or are going through a tough phase, be it DEPRESSION, STRESS, INSOMNIA, ANXIETY or other mental health problems. We can provide a helping hand to such people by identifying the stress the person might be going through or friend who tell us that they are depressed, instead of mocking them or disregarding their emotions we can at least hear them out, give positive suggestion or guide them to seek professional help.

We can make lives easier for people who are suffering by providing a helping hand, by being supportive, by being understanding.
