Lighten Up

Cosmopolitan (Philippines) - - Feel -

Feel­ing sad? Anx­ious? Stressed? What­ever’s both­er­ing you, we be­lieve you should let go of the idea that you have to put on a straight face and be okay—and fi­nally start ac­knowl­edg­ing what­ever state of mind you’re in. Since 1994, we’ve cel­e­brated Na­tional Men­tal Health Week dur­ing the sec­ond week of Oc­to­ber to co­in­cide with World Health Day, held ev­ery 10th of Oc­to­ber, mak­ing this the per­fect time to al­low your­self to talk about what­ever’s both­er­ing you—whether to a friend, a fam­ily mem­ber, or even a pro­fes­sional (trust us, we’re not judg­ing). Don’t know where to start? Give the Philip­pine Men­tal Health As­so­ci­a­tion a call at (02) 921 4958 to 59.
