World Mental Health Day

A bit late since October 10 was World Mental Health Day but there is no time like the present to be reminded of the pain suffered by this invisible condition.

Seamless Writing

Today, October 10, is World Mental Health day. The term ‘mental health’ brings to mind an image of silent suffering. ‘Silent’ since unacknowledged by a society that remains ignorant and hence largely unaware that mental illness is also an illness, and not a taboo.

silence that defeats
a bird with a broken wing
fit body ill mind

A little bit about moi: I am a mom, a nana, a sister, a woman, a friend, a human being…a youth counsellor, Family Life Educator. I have been working in the helping profession for over 25 years and volunteered in various capacities from youths to seniors. Tournesol is my nom de plume for haiku and other Japanese form poetry here at Tournesoldansunjardin I hope you enjoy reading through my daily waka. I also have another blog "Stop the Stigma" where I may stand on my soapbox now and then and hope it will become a place to drop in and share or comment on issues important to you. In that vein this could be a great way to learn from each other. Namaste!
