Common Myths about Mental Health

MYTH: Why are you crying?" You are so weak for crying, I thought you were strong, just suck it up."

FACT: Crying is a healthy way of releasing emotions, its a coping mechanism, just like running, exercising, screaming etc.

Crying actually has many benefits such as decreasing stress in the body by releasing stress hormones, which can improve, emotional and physical well-being since you are reducing stress levels, and we all know stress can be even dangerous for some medical conditions, if not all.

MYTH: Only major events or life threatening situations can be traumatizing.

FACT: I first want to start with, whatever is traumatic for one person, may not be for the other, vice versa. Of course major events such as accidents, combat, assault etc., can do doubt be traumatizing but is not limited to just those.

In fact, it can involve the pandemic alone, hearing or witnessing something on the news, losing a loved one, and much more.

MYTH: You can tell by just looking at someone's appearance that they are either healthy or sick.

FACT: I cannot stress enough how untrue that statement is. There are many individuals that are battling mental health or even medical conditions but you cannot tell from just looking at them. You may see someone at work laughing, making jokes, or always "happy" but in fact, they go home and cry, or can be battling a terminal illness.

That also goes to show that if someone has a specific body type it does not mean you can tell if they are "healthy" or not, because reality is we all come in different shapes and sizes and health is not just determined by the shape and size.
