One stigma about mental health that needs to be eradicated is the belief that mental illness is a sign of weakness or personal failure. This stigma perpetuates the idea that individuals with mental health conditions are somehow flawed or lacking in character. It can prevent people from seeking help and support, and it can lead to feelings of shame and isolation. In reality, mental health issues are complex and can arise from a variety of factors, including genetic predisposition, environmental influences, and life circumstances. Mental illnesses are real medical conditions that require proper diagnosis and treatment, just like physical ailments. They are not a reflection of a person's strength or worth.

One stigma about mental health that many people wish we could eliminate is that seeking help for mental health issues is a sign of weakness or personal failure. In reality, seeking help for mental health concerns is a brave and proactive step towards improving one's overall well-being. It takes courage to acknowledge that one is struggling and to seek out resources and support. By eliminating this stigma, we can encourage more people to prioritize their mental health and seek the help they need without fear of judgment or shame.

Just started college and already facing some serious homophobia from my classmates. They keep making jokes and spreading rumors. I don't want to tell my parents yet, but this is starting to affect my mental health. Any advice on how to handle this?
Anonymous7d
So first of all you should take help from your professor or some counselor who will help you in dealing with this problem. secondly if you feel like then you should share it with your parents. There is nothing wrong in that, instead they will support you and help you in this situation
Firstly thank you for sharing how you felt,secondly our culture in india is not queer affirmative but what we as individuals needs is acceptance of our own identity and am so glad you embrace it, facing bullying is difficult everyday i suggest talking to your counselor/therapist for helping you build resilience

My friends straight up don't listen to me when I'm venting or sharing my problems. They zone out, change the subject, or give shitty advice that shows they weren't even paying attention. It's pissing me off feeling dismissed like that by people who are supposed to be my girls. How do I get through to them and make them actually hear me out without invalidating how I feel?
Its better to stay with less friends then the friends who dont value your feelings, nevertheless, confrontation of how you feel can also help to either break off or bring you closer
then they are not real friends simple

I am suffering with depression from past 10-12 years. I am taking regular psychiatric medicines also. But the major problem which I am facing in life is that I am having a vascillating mind. I am not able to stick to one plan for more than 2-3 days. I cannot follow anything religiously or with consistency. I lose my interest in anything I decide to do very soon. I can't even take bath daily because of mental lethargy. I have gained a lot of weight in these 10-12 years. It's 122 kg currently. I have tried meditation, yoga, walking, exercise everything. But I am not able to continue these things for a long time. I give up in 2-3 days everytime. I am 30 years old. I want to change my life. I want to get out of this vicious circle. How can I come out of it. Please widen my horizon about what is that is hindering in my life to move on and flourish and change. please advise and help me with your suggestions.
Hey there, thank you for sharing. Feeling like you've tried a lot of things and nothing working can be truly disheartening. It's understandable you feel frustrated and exhausted. I want to acknowledge the effort you've put in to find ways to feel better. It's definitely not easy. Since you've already been on medication for a long time, it's natural for your body to get resistant to it. Along with the meds, I would suggest to seek professional guidance from a psychologist for a fresh perspective. Sometimes a new perspective gives a glimmer of hope and might pave the way for your progress. Additionally, having a strong support system(friends, family) can also help you with motivation. Remember to be gentle with yourself during this challenging time, it's okay to take breaks and prioritize self care. Even though it might not feel like it now, things can change. If you want to explore further, you can get on a one-on-one call with me on the platform.
Hi Aparna, I hear your struggle,it is very challenging and 10-12 years is a long time.You have a lot of things at hand, weight management, depression, routine, etc all of which can be very overwhelming. You are very highly motivated Aparna but consistency is the issue, right? There is some negative self talk which is overpowering to keep you in a loop. Therapy is very important for you to get out of this loop. You can book a discovery call with me.

I feel that I experience FOMO every time I don’t do something my friends are doing or every time I skip going out with them. And this fear has now turned into panic attacks and fear of losing them. What do I do, How can I overcome this?
Dearest Anonymous... Before anything else... take a breath and know that you are not alone. But there are ways to deal with this. I am a Woman's Emotional Health Specialist..... the only one in India. would love to have a chat with you if you feel like it. 🌺 I have been working with Indian women in all their authenticity and distinction very closely. Would love to chat with you and figure out how I can help you be totally free from this feeling of FOMO you are experiencing. Please message me, if this feels like you want to give it a chance. loads of love and a big hug to you 😘
Fomo is a very natural feeling to have since humans are social animals and when we are deprived of that social context, it makes us anxious. If it is bothering you that your friends hang out without you, you can try communicating with them on how you're feeling. if you get the validation from them, it might make you feel better and less left out. You can also note if specific things are making you feel insecure or in a general sense. Additionally, if it is overwhelming you to the point of a panic attack, it is good to seek a professional's help who can help you with your issues specifically.

Berapa lama anxiety menyerang?
Anonymous13d
Anxiety bisa menyerang dalam waktu yang beda-beda, tergantung situasinya. Biasanya sih, nggak bisa diprediksi banget, tapi bisa berlangsung dari beberapa menit sampe beberapa jam atau bahkan lebih lama. Tapi yang pasti, jangan dibiarin terus-terusan ya, lebih baik cari cara untuk atasinnya.
