On mental health…

Mental health includes therapy, a support system, and also–in other cases–medication. That’s why we have medicine folks. I used to be a non-believer but I think that what is important is to find a balance. Treat symptoms of a disease with talking and writing along with, if it necessary for the patient, medication. Let’s not forget that exercise, meditating, art, and music, –even pets– help a patient struggling with a disease. But sometimes, as the photo below suggests, these are not enough. Support psychologists and psychiatrists in Puerto Rico by believing in mental health and eliminating the stigma we have. The more we talk about it, the less excluded people struggling feel. Let’s make mental health an inclusive and open part of our society. We definitely need it.
