we celebrate mental health awareness week this year I thought of sharing my thoughts on the topic. Coming from India, a forever developing, socially distraught society at the brink of chaos mental health has a lot of stigmas associated with it. In Indian Culture and as far as I know, it can extend it to most Asian cultures mental struggles are viewed as a sign of weakness. I can quote two recent incidents, the employee suicides at Facebook and the Qualcomm amongst a lot more that may go unreported or unnoticed.
One of the biggest epidemic hitting our generation is not any disease by loneliness itself.Its time we acknowledge the elephant in the room. Loneliness is a dirty word carrying a stigma of shame.Loneliness does not stem from solitude per say.
