When asked this question, a lot of people say they don’t work on their mental health. Those who say yes usually relate it to doing meditation, yoga, indulging in a hobby, or taking psychotherapy: all seemingly complicated processes for them.
While this is the commonly accepted reality, what if we tell you that your every single decision you make and every action you take in a day is connected to your mental health?
Pause for a moment and let this sink in; everything you do in a day impacts your mental health. From the food you savor, the connections you make, to the places you tread, it all plays a significant role in shaping your emotional well-being. In fact, it accumulates to more than 16 hours a day!
Yet, despite its profound impact on our lives, mental health is often relegated to the shadows, encased in stigma. Fear of judgment and discrimination chains those suffering from mental health issues. Silence becomes a coping mechanism, trapping individuals in a cycle of shame and isolation.
The primary cause of this situation is the lack of awareness about these three key concepts:
People don’t have the language to describe their mental health problems. How often is it that you feel an emotional turmoil so severe that you can’t function at all, but all you manage to explain to others is that you’re feeling ‘bad’? You need to know the right words and be aware that you’re working on your mental health all the time. Solh provides you with various resources, in the form of the Read & Learn section that gives you vast knowledge about the vocabulary of the mental health space.
Even if you’re aware of your mental health problems, you require devices that allow you to work on them, which are not accessible or even available currently. However, Solh provides you with comprehensive tools and resources like Journaling, Goal Setting, and Self-Assessment tests that you can use for your mental health recovery.
There is also an absence of a social structure where you can effectively work on your mental health. It is hard to heal in a social setting that doesn’t nurture mental health and lacks a thriving and supportive community. Solh provides you with that very social structure through our community in the form of Support Groups, where you can effectively work on your mental health.
Solh Wellness aims to revolutionize the mental health space by solving all these problems. We provide you with the tools, vocabulary, and framework you need on your journey to mental wellness by providing a non-judgmental safe space where mental health is accepted and available 24/7, accessible, affordable, and personalized for everyone!
