*Trigger Warning - Depression* Depression. A word used by many and understood only by a few. Most people think that it means a feeling of sorrow and intense grief. Many take it to mean someone’s weakness. Nobody ever takes it to mean what it actually does mean. Many say, "Believe in yourself and everything will be fine". Some say, "Stop being a wimp", and others say," You are just trying to gain attention". But what most people never say is, “I think professional help can ben

Stigma Surrounding “Men don’t cry!”, ”You have a family to take care of!”, “Man up!”, are a few of the things the society tells men. From the beginning, men are told that showing emotions is weak, that being vulnerable is not a quality a man should have because that makes him ‘unmanly’.

You: “Listen I need to talk to you. Do you have a minute?” Friend: “Umm..can I…” You: “Okay, so I’m really upset with how my manager spoke to me today and it’s not only about today, I just feel like she keeps demeaning my work and humiliating me in front of other colleagues. Even things at home aren’t that great, my parents have such high expectations of me, I just can’t deal with everything anymore.” Friend: “I’m really sorry, I’m in the middle of something, can I call you b
“It’s all in your mind.” “You are just tired, rest and you will be okay in a few days.” “Have a strong will, it’s because you have a weak mind.” All of us have heard these statements countless times when we tried to come out and seek help for what we were feeling deep inside. Mental illness is the mental condition of a person which is unhealthy for his physical as well as emotional health and affects his/her behaviour and daily life.
