Why Is It Taboo to Talk About Mental Health?
Have you ever felt uncomfortable talking about mental health issues with your friends or family? In this video, different people reveal how mental health stigmas at home or in their communities have affected them. They candidly share the struggles they’ve been through—anxiety, depression, suicidal thoughts—and how the taboos around the topics made it more difficult for them to get help. People don’t want to be seen as “weak” or “crazy,” and they may deal with family members who refuse to accept that they’re suffering. This is a poignant call for more acceptance about the mental health struggles that so many of us face at some point in life.
