WHAT MENTAL HEALTH MEANS TO ME?

According to the World Health Organization (WHO), mental health is defined as a state of
well-being in which every individual, can cope with the normal stresses of life, realizes his or her
own potential and can work productively. Personally, I do believe is the most important part of our
health. We cannot take care of our body and take our mental health for granted.
Mental health means different things to different people. In my opinion, it's being able to enjoy
the life to the fullest and being resilient to everything that happens in your life. And, more
importantly, being surrounded by people who are going to stimulate, inspire and lift you up, who
are going to give you energy and not take energy away from you.
In Brazil, it’s estimated that 23 million people are struggling with mental illness. As a matter
of fact, 23 million people represents just 10% of Brazil’s population. But if you ask me, I’d dare to
say that none of us are doing that great. We all feel sad, lonely or discouraged at some point of life.
But more than never, we are feeling more anxious, depressed and stressed out.
However, if you ask around, hardly ever someone will admit having it. In fact, even nowadays,
it’s hard for some people to come forward about their struggle, in part because our society still have
problems to accept and undestand mental illness. Indeed, there is a social stigma attached to it. Our
society usually sees mental illness as a signal of weakness, because it’s easier to judge someone and
point fingers than show human empathy and actually help another person.
