#MyMentalHealthIn3Words: Twitterati Share Stories Of Recovery And Acceptance

According to a 2019 report by the WHO, one in every four people in the world will be affected by mental or neurological disorders at some point in their lives and around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide.

Despite that, the taboo around mental health continues to stop people from opening up about it and having honest conversations about their struggles. Going for therapy or seeing a psychologist is still seen as a weakness and mental health isn't given the same importance that physical health is.
