Mental health shouldn’t be a taboo topic, it’s almost as common as the common cold! And more so within the fashion industry!
So why is it we know about physical illness and the symptoms of a cold? Some have varying degrees of severity, it might not be a cold, it could be the flu, dengue or pneumonia etc. Yet we know when to see a doctor and when not to.
When it comes to mental health and wellbeing negative terminology is used such as illness and disorder. When you accompany this with archaic mental health practices it is perhaps no wonder we don’t speak about it, acknowledge it or even understand it.
The more we know, the more we can identify and the more we can help to get better mental health and wellbeing.
