“It is not the bruises on the body that hurts. It is the wounds of the heart and the scars on the mind.” — Aisha Mirza
🙋♂️🙋♀️ Today we celebrate World Mental Health Day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma! Mental health is one of the most stigmatized issues in our society. Many people suffer in silence and avoid discussing mental health issues, either because they might be negatively labelled and judged or because they might be questioned or disregarded.
🫂Each individual will appreciate support and understanding, so be kind and don’t forget to ask your loved ones if they are doing okay!
🧠🏋️ Emphasys Centre actively works on the promotion of positive mental health through projects such as:
👉 ‘YouthMinds‘ – Promotion of Youth Mental Health through Awareness, Prevention & Resilience Building’.
👉 ‘Hold On‘ – Fostering access to mental health support for young people
👉 ‘STRONG2GETHER’ – Upgrading the Resilience and Adaptability of Seniors in The Post-Covid Era Through a Digital-Driven Lifelong Learning Programme Promoting Civic Engagement of all Ages
👉 ‘STRESSOUT’ – Modern Tools for Work-Related Stress Management
