It has become such a big health issue yet many people consider it a taboo to talk about it. If anyone who suffers from such problems usually talks about it, most people either choose to not talk about it as they are told to take it easy or it is not good to talk about such issue out in public as it may stain one’s image of a healthy being.  In most cases,  therefore people suffer silently from this disease so as to not suffer this society shame.


So ‘September‘ has been considered as the month of mental health awareness. This month focuses on discussing the issues and problems related to the disease and helping people suffering from such problems to be able to talk about it and discuss it. Many big international celebs like Selena Gomez,  Demi Lovato, one of the funniest actors,  Jim Carrey have suffered from mental health issues. Even Deepika Padukone has been a sufferer of it. But all those celebs have actually used the social platform to discuss their problems and make people aware of it and to let those who suffer from it know that they are not alone in their battles and that’s what this month of September known as ‘mental health awareness’ aims to.
