Benefits of Good Mental Health

The mind is amazing….  but,  the mind can spoil things for us.

“According to new estimates of prevalence of depression, released by the World Health Organisation today, the number of people living with depression increased by more than 18% between 2005 and 2015. Depression is also the largest cause of disability worldwide”.  WHO 23 February 2017.

There is, sadly, still a level of stigma around mental illness, at the root of this is the way it has been viewed historically in our society.  Mental illness is so common, yet people tend to not talk about it, and that makes everything worse; thankfully, attitudes are slowly changing. Whether an illness affects your heart, your leg, or your brain, it is still an illness and there should be no distinction.
