Understanding Mental Health
World Mental Health Day is on October 10 and as our understanding of mental health grows, we grow along with it. Our self-awareness and sensitivity towards it have changed things for the better. Our language surrounding mental health has improved as words like “crazy” and “lunatic” are used less flippantly and we come to better understand that they can be unintentionally hurtful and stigmatising. While we’ve learned a lot, there’s still so much more we can do to evolve as a society.
