The illness of being human

Dear All,

I am psychologist by trade and a filmmaker at heart.

While working with patients and for my own experience, I have realised that one of the biggest part of the problem with mental health issues is the stigma attached to it.

We feel ashamed for experiencing the emotions we experience, thinking the thoughts we think and acting in the only way we are able to act in our own circumstances.

So to the original pain, whatever that is; we add the pain of judging and criticising ourselves for being broken or damaged or just not good enough for this world.
