Don’t judge anyone, including self, regardless of past, everyone needs hope and a chance in life

How often do we hear bad news on the television or read about someone selling drugs, prostituting themselves or taking part in some other illegal activity and we judge them as ‘bad’. More often than not there is a reason that led to these people doing what they did and trying to understand their situation and knowing the whole story can give more empathy for a person who had lost all hope after he had made some bad choices out of desperation or despair. In this blog we share a video that will help you realize that not every criminal is a bad person but also that no matter the bad decisions you may have made in your past there is always someone willing to help you get yourself back, never give up on yourself.

What is success? Let’s ask the kids!

Here is a lovely short video about what kids think it means to be successful. There is a lot of pressure on us all to be financially and materially successful and we have been brainwashed, probably by corporate entities, into thinking that is the only way we can define ourselves as ‘successful human beings’ but is this really success? Many footballers for instance have great material and financial success, as do bankers but they end up having mental health problems so is money really the identifier of success and happiness?

To find out the answer to these questions if we go back to the purity and innocence of a child’s way of thinking you might realise what is success and redefine our own thinking.

This one thing can separate people from getting help

One of the things that bothers me about mental health care is the people around the world that don’t get the help for whatever reason. The ones who slip the system because are not seen by the right doctor, the ones who get improperly diagnosed or the ones who don’t feel they can ask for help. But the worst case of mental health neglect is those people that need help but simply can’t financially afford to get specialist help, those are the people I am most upset about and it is for all those people who don’t get the help they need why Battle of Mind was created and we hope to offer guidance on how to find a path to healing regardless of personal circumstance or living location.

In this blog post we share a video of a poet discussing his experience of his friend and his own mental health care due to one thing, money.
