Darkness, like grief, a diagnosis, or an uncertain future is disorienting. We reach our arms out blindly hoping to touch something that will ground us.  

Do things that scare you

Think back to a time when you were afraid of doing something. Did you eventually do it? Who or why not? How has that affected you?

The stigma attached to mental health conditions is so pervasive that people who suspect that they might have a mental health condition are unwilling to seek help for fear of what others may think. Experiences of stigma and discrimination is one of their greatest barriers to a satisfying life. Family and friends are also affected by mental health stigma.
