Most people who see therapists are not dangerous, violent or even eccentric.

The same way people visit doctors when they aren’t sick — they might want a checkup, test, or advice — therapy is not exclusively for people with diagnosed mental health conditions.

It’s okay to say that you’re not okay. Yes, that’s right. Your feelings and emotions are valid.

Thank you @akahnnani for this message.

Most people find super it awkward to talk about #mentalhealth.
.
If someone has a physical illness or breaks an arm, we’ll ask how they’re doing, be supportive; offer to do things for them and give our sympathies. .
When someone has mental health issues, often we shy away and let them “deal with it” on their own, or try rationalise things for them; “you’re fine”, “it’s not as bad as you think”. Imagine saying that to someone with a broken limb or terminal illness! .
Because mental illness is invisible until it is spoken about, and so it far too often stays invisible. But it is REAL. As real as bone-break. .
People may struggle with their mind at some point in life, and if you are thinking you can’t do anything about it, that is FALSE!
.
.
Simply asking someone how they’re feeling or if there’s anything they wanna get off their chest could literally turn their day from miserable to bearable, from lonely to hopeful. .
Hoping that just ONE person will read this and ask someone in their life how they’re doing. And that maybe, that person’s load will feel just a wee bit lighter.

When it comes to hope and optimism, think of Nigerians, who has consistently been ranked among the most optimistic nations in the world.

In Nigeria, almost everybody lives on a miracle. People believe that no matter what their circumstance is right now, it’s going to turn around. You even see it on billboards on city buses — the most common one is "No Condition Is Permanent."

Also, a good number has to do with the support system. You know, we have extended families — Wecall our cousins my brothers and sisters. We don’t see them as cousins. So you’re responsible not just for yourself but for your whole clan of people.

Life in Nigeria is incomparable to other nations. Unlike other countries where you can get arrest for playing loud music, you go to Lagos, the first thing that shocks you is the noise,the animation, how insanely lively and boisterous and loquacious it is — like a thousand voices in your head at the same time. It feels more alive.

A strong sense of connection to other people is important for mental health.

Hope and optimism are key things learn and relearn for the sake of mental health.

Rough patch, a bad day, a major setback. Sometimes, it seems like one thing goes wrong after another. And another, and another.

Sometimes an unexpected challenge or an obstacle might come your way, and you find yourself stressing out, worrying and not knowing what to do. And, some days, you just have nothing. Zero motivation, no creativity. All of a sudden, you’re being plagued with self-doubt.

You think you have to be strong all the time.

You think you’re not allowed to cry, to admit that you’re not okay.

It’s okay to not be okay.
