Why is it sometimes hard to talk about mental health?

Discussion Starter

Everyone has times in life when they struggle or when things feel hard. And the more people who are honest about how they are feeling when life gets tough, the less people will feel embarrassed to share these things. Why not help change things by talking about how you feel with someone you trust? Talking about your feelings, can help you feel better and may help others open up and talk about theirs too.

If you’re struggling with life, you might feel like you don’t want to talk about how you feel. But this is exactly the time that you need to reach out. Don’t be afraid or embarrassed to admit how you are feeling. It is brave to ask for help.
