Tips for A Good Mental Health by World Health Organization (WHO)


My friends, how have you been? I hope you're doing fine. ❤️❤️❤️

As for me, I have recently found back my writing mojo and I'm exhilarated beyond words! It's like I found back a piece of me that has been missing for years.

Is Mental Health A Social Stigma?


I strongly advocate that mental health should not be a social stigma anymore especially during this pandemic. In my previous post about mental health care, I shared eight tips of how we can take care of our mental health post pandemic as we navigate our daily lives while adjusting to new realities.
