“#WorldMentalHealthDay mental health illness is fast growing amongst us all and I am glad a lot of people are talking. Speaking out & not dealing with issues in silence is one major step in beating mental health issues. In @atoastolifebook I had to go through alot alone. I had to learn that I needed to share these things in order to heal and be a better person. In a world with so much societal pressure, peer pressure, keeping up appearances, trolling and cyber Bullying we need to look out for our friends and family and also develop the culture of talking about things that affects our mental state of mind. Keeping it inside is never the solution. It’ll all become better if we all can learn to speak kind words to each other and make the world a better place. #saynotocyberbullying #saynotosuicide
