We Must Pay Attention to our Emotional Well-Being
Mental health is so stigmatized that while we seek help for our bodies it is ok and expected, when we want to have emotional well-being, seeking help is stigmatized so most people remain silent instead of consulting a professional.
The clinical director of Manah Wellness, Debasmita Sinha, offers us some ways to detect warning signs of our own stigma against emotional well-being, such as: “I don’t want others to know I am seeking counselling/therapy”, “I don’t need an outsider to fix my problems”, “I don’t have the time/money for mental health counseling/therapy”.
“If you lost a loved one, going through divorce or breakup, a stressful relocation or a new project, undergoing physical or mental assault, you may need help,”Debasmita Sinha.
