*Mental health thread*

At least 1 in 4 of us are suffering with mental health illnesses.

We are all human and we do not know what trouble the human beside us is facing.

🙏 CHOOSE to listen, support, be kind & fair.

Your hello and smile may be what gives someone strength.
The thing about mental health is that it can seriously affect how we see things, how we perceive ourselves and others around us.

Negative thoughts of failure or self-criticism or loss of confidence being wrongly reinforced by how others treat us can affect how we feel.
Eventually it can all become overwhelming.

One can feel that they can no longer cope.

Choose not to be the person who takes away someone’s sense of security, self belief, sense of achievement or confidence.
CHOOSE to make a positive impact.

CHOOSE to be the leader of fairness, inclusivity, integrity, kindness, support.

CHOOSE to inspire good.

CHOOSE to listen

CHOOSE to love, care and treat others how you want to be treated

CHOOSE to create avenues and not close doors
When I was at school, I had a teacher who was really suffering from mental health issues. One day she kept me behind after class. She said to me “you have no idea how it makes me feel when you open the door for me and say goodmorning”

Sadly she left her job later that week.
I never saw her again but it made me THINK how far a little bit of kindness goes.

Sometimes kindness is all it takes to create hope, peace, security, happiness. 😍
What is there to be gained from belittling, undermining or hurting someone else?

We need to reflect on our own subconscious biases and behaviours. Are we acting fairly?

Fairness and justice matter so much to so many of us. Violating that creates so much hurt.
Aim to make others comfortable and happy.

Be the person they trust. The person they confide in so that next time they need a chat they have someone to go to.

Be the solution and not the problem.

Be #kind
Mental health becomes a #crisis when we feel there is no exit / solution ahead.

Be the one to create solutions, talk through options, support ambitions and help others.

Time we think beyond the self and how to be selfless. Let’s look after one another.

Let’s be there. 😍
Time to THiNK.

It’s up to us to create a culture of fairness & kindness.

Kindness breeds kindness
Compassion breeds compassion
Love breeds love

Just in the same way:
Gossip breeds gossip
Injustice breeds injustice
Meanness breeds meanness.

Choose to be a leader of good.
The power of kindness is unbelievably strong.

Kindness makes someone feel valued. Real kindness if when we put someone else before ourselves. When we sacrifice what we want the most for someone else.

Let’s support the ambitions of those around us.

Let’s support happiness.
Never underestimate the power of fairness.

Sometimes all another human needs is a sense of acknowledgment of what has happened.

Be the leader of good. Choose values every time.

Be true to yourself and stand up for what is right. Stand up for what you believe in.😍
Pick up on queues in conversations. You might be the only one that someone is happy to confide in.

Be prepared to listen. Listen. Share experiences. Put someone at ease.

Be the light in the darkness. Be the giver of hope and optimism. 😊
Be there 😍
Authenticity and compassion mean everything.

CHOOSE to bring others on board.

CHOOSE to walk a journey together.
Set an example.

Respond to:
- injustice with justice
- incompassion with compassion
- unfairness with fairness
- isolation with collaboration
- stigmatisation with inclusion
- hate with love 💓
Be the light in the darkness 😀

Others will follow.

Might be easy to follow what’s “popular” when actually you could choose to lead the trend. A trend of #love #compassion #values #trust #fairness #equality #authenticity #integrity. 😍
Imagine the impact and culture we could create if we all treat each other with #kindness , if we choose to #listen and be #fair.

Authenticity is a powerful entity. It can provide the sense of common ground that others so desperately need to talk...

There is always someone who wants to listen.

You are never alone

There is always a solution. You might not see it right now but it is there - always.

We all need support sometimes. It’s ok to chat.

You are good. You are you. You have so much to offer.
