Introductory Video to MINDSPLACE Channel

Those close to me know how passionate by divine conviction I am about Mental Health.
Why am I passionate about mental health?
I am passionate about mental health awareness because I know how it feels to be mentally unhealthy. I have friends, family, colleagues who have struggled, and still struggle with it. Anxiety and depression are especially prevalent amongst a large number of people but 95% of them live in denial. 
At the development stage of maturity and attempting to "create our identity" and figure out independence and adulthood, a lot of us become overwhelmed and feel pressure from rising early, school, exams, parents, friends, work, business and what the future holds. You realize that your past or present does not define you.

My aim is to create awareness and educate people on mental illnesses, with the hope that with this understanding, we can begin to lift the stigmas about mental health conditions. No one should be scared of saying that they have a mental condition for the fear of being ridiculed and isolated. It should not.
I hope you will all join me on this journey and that you learn something you did not know. Mental health is a topic I am very passionate about, and I want to share this passion with you and the world. With understanding comes acceptance. Change takes time. Change is not easy, but change is possible if someone has the will and the desire. CHANGE IS WORTH IT! And it starts with you and me.
Join us this in sharing your story, your understanding, and your experience on Mental Health, in order to support those who are in need of encouragement.
Share now to promote awareness.
