Love Letter – You matter. Your life matters. Your mental health matters.

Your mental health matters. 

Your mental health matters.

One more time, your mental health matters. 

What happens between your ears is the most important thing. That directs everything else you do in life. It controls how you act, speak, respond, love, care, argue, eat, move and just live.

Here are a few facts about mental health according to the World Health Organization (WHO):

-Mental, neurological and substance use disorders make up 10% of the global burden of disease and 30% of non-fatal disease burden.

-Around 1 in 5 of the world’s children and adolescents have a mental disorder.

-Depression is one of the leading causes of disability, affecting 264 million people.

-About half of mental disorders begin before the age of 14.

-Almost 800,000 people die by suicide every year; 1 person dies from suicide every 40 seconds. Suicide is the second leading cause of death in individuals aged 15-29 years.

-Around 1 in 9 people in settings affected by conflict have a moderate or severe mental disorder.
 
-People with severe mental disorders die 10 to 20 years earlier than the general population.
 
-The global economy loses about US$ 1 trillion per year in productivity due to depression and anxiety.

There are many places that offer help if you need it. Even if you feel like you may not need it, you’re not wrong for wanting to speak to someone. 

You matter. Your life matters. Your mental health matters.
