I contacted CareForHealth because I wanted to help people who had gone through what I knew I went through. I managed to work through the issues and pull myself out but everyone isn’t as lucky. I personally feel it is a calling for me. I think if you haven’t been through serious depression yourself, you can’t really empathise with someone who is suffering from it. If you have walked through it then the solution you give is not just two dimensional, you can create a space for someone going through it because you know where they are at. I personally never took any medication for my depression but it is very necessary because as far as our perception of mental health goes, a lot of us tend to believe only what we can see. This it isn’t a physical ailment. It is a an invisible wound. Mental Health issues basically arise when you are going through an experience and are unable to process that experience and then cannot cope with it. We actively suppress a lot of what we are feeling. What that does it is that it keeps the problem alive and unresolved. We try and solve it superficially but not actually deal with it. People tend to consider depression as a character flaw and that is really not right. This is prevalent everywhere in our society. Today we face a huge problem because of this neglect and we need to tackle this head on. This is something I want to do with my life, to cause this shift in society and create more awareness about Mental Health.
