October 10th is Mental Health Awareness Day where around the world organizations, charities, community groups, and the public are raising awareness about mental health. "The theme of this year’s event is suicide and suicide prevention.
Every year close to 800,000 people globally take their own life and there are many more people who attempt suicide. Every suicide is a tragedy that affects families, communities and has long-lasting effects on the people left behind. It's the leading cause of death among young people aged 20-34 years in the UK and is the second leading cause of death among 15-29 year-olds globally," Source- https://www.facebook.com/timetochange/ 👍Through conversations, activities, exhibitions, education, and events we can share and express mental health together and support each other.🤝 ❤️We don't need to be doctors, psychologists or therapists to aid someone in crisis sometimes just listening and being there is enough. ❤️ Here is some resources:

October 10, 2019 is Mental Health Awareness Day. As you all know I’m the Co-Founder and Vice President of Beyond Beauty. Yesterday we started our first event “For the Love of You” of The Self-love Series: “I Heart Me”. During the event we touch bases on how loving yourself plays a big role on your mental and emotional health. When dealing with insecurities, self-doubt, looking for validation, or etc your setting yourself up for a destructive downward spiral that could led to anxiety and depression. To overcome/ pull ourselves out we’ve to:
1. Learn to be okay with the person you are. Validate yourself!
2. Find and focus on the good stuff about yourself. What’s your talents?
3. Help someone else. Break your destructive cycle but putting forth service.
Practice steps 1 and 2 daily in the mirror. It’s important to reshape your vision of yourself. Your emotional/mental health are worth that effort. You are worth seeing yourself as worthwhile.
To be an mentor/ advocator of self-love for young ladies , I need to be living my truth. Ever Friday during October for our self-love event I will post one of my insecurities and what I’m doing/ plan to overcome them. #selfcare #selflove #mentalhealthawareness #mentalhealth #inspiration #loveyourself
