World Mental Health Day 2022World Mental Health Day is an international day for global mental health education, awareness and advocacy against social stigma.

Mental health awareness is a part of my daily practice. I am a neurodistinct Black woman learning to unmask and be my authentic self, deprogram everything that is not for my highest good and embrace all aspects of me through radical acceptance and radical honesty. I am grateful for my expanding access to the right people, resources and tools to help me expand my awareness, wellness, knowledge and manage my daily experiences with autism and ADHD. May I continue to have the courage, confidence and compassion to express myself and help others in their journeys.

From the World Health Organization (WHO):

Stigma and discrimination continue to be a barrier to social inclusion and access to the right care; importantly, we can all play our part in increasing awareness about which preventive mental health interventions work and World Mental Health Day is an opportunity to do that collectively. We envision a world in which mental health is valued, promoted and protected; where everyone has an equal opportunity to enjoy mental health and to exercise their human rights; and where everyone can access the mental health care they need.

Make mental health & well-being for all a global priority.


In what ways do you prioritize mental health in your life? Where do you observe room for improvement in your mental health practice? In what ways do you show support for others with their mental health?

Please share your experiences in the comments, send me a message or write in your reflections in a journal.
