We aim to dispel societal expectations and to encourage people to be proud of who they are. 

START TALKING ABOUT MENTAL HEALTH WITH OTHER PEOPLE

Have you ever considered discussing mental health with your family and friends? Generally, we don’t chat about mental wellness because we are afraid there will be some kind of repercussions. It is time to change this habit and start encouraging each other to prioritize a healthy mind.

CREATE SOLIDARITY

When we share our mental health status with friends, family members, or colleagues, we show that we are human. We realize that we aren’t alone, so it creates a sense of community and support.

STOP THE STIGMA

There is this idea that a person who has difficulties with their mental health is weak or has something wrong with them. These individuals get put into a category that demoralizes them. Yet their experiences are legitimate and shouldn’t be frowned upon.

It is crucial that we initiate and welcome discussions about mental health because it takes away the stigma. It allows mental health conversation to be a normal occurrence.

ENCOURAGE HEALTHY BEHAVIOR

As soon as we bring mental health to the forefront, we open ourselves to the possibility of getting help and supporting each other. This encourages healthy behavior instead of falling back on unhealthy coping mechanisms.

CREATING IMPACTFUL CONVERSATIONS

Far From FKN Normal’s goal is to spark interest and conversation – allowing people to express their individuality in a non-judgemental and unobtrusive way.

The more we talk about mental health, the more support we can give each other. Chat to your friends and family about mental health today or simply lessen the stigma by doing small things, like sharing this article.
