People speak about stigma as if it’s something to defeat. Mental health is already won when we accept it’s an alternative way of being, a life to be shared, there is no threat unless we create it.
“No one is going to change the world for us”– but for the time-being until people realize they are in control of their lives, someone is. And I don’t want that someone to be anyone that does not have control over their own lives. So that is why people who understand the world must take a stand however short-lived their leadership is seen and however devalued by the collective over time, its importance is greatly met with expression of need for the ones who wish to be the change of the world, do.
I am a member on a council called the “The Young Canadian Roundtable on Health,” who focus on all areas of health. I focus on Mental Health and would greatly appreciate your support to see a social change in our Mental Health system.
We are on Facebook or Twitter, each one of you each holds a key to empowerment that needs to be seen in the collective.
“Creativity is the space we all connect on. When loneliest, it’s the grandest way to reach out to others. A reach that may not be sought by many, agreed to be disagreed by plenty, but never lost in a heart of journey. We live out this way and live out that way, but if we all live a life in one way, no one will ever see the need to be more. Our means to be confidently different is the change this world will always need. Give it your all!” – Kane
