From Syokimau to Machakos Town have seen more than 10 heavy trucks with no rear reflectors or even lights. Very dangerous. Those of you who drive at night be keen on the road.

@HisiaPsychology @MUnsilenced Thanks for engaging us!
Mental health conditions should be shown the same support and compassion as physical health conditions. For that to happen, as @MUnsilenced mentioned, we must speak out. When we are silent, stigma wins.

@HisiaPsychology @MUnsilenced As a person with lived experience, be bold! own your condition, be educated about it and take the chance on educating others whenever you're presented with the situation. Once others see you shine in your inadequacies, they stop negatively viewing them.

@HisiaPsychology @MUnsilenced Creating safe spaces for people living with mental health conditions. A friend can take the extra step of informing themselves on their friend's condition so as to be aware of how to properly handle the situation. This can also empower the friend to assist in situations of stigma

 3  1

@HisiaPsychology @MUnsilenced Those experiencing stigma can also educate themselves and acquire more information on their mental health condition so as to educate others once they give misinformed remarks on mental health

 4  1

@HisiaPsychology @MUnsilenced 1. Mindfulness. Accepting ones condition or situation and making peace with it.
2. Having a support system, i.e support group, family and friends to help cushion the negative effects of stigma. Helping the individual feel like they're not alone.

@HisiaPsychology @MUnsilenced lack of support from governing bodies to implement legal frameworks that support mental health and help in provision of resources to help sensitize the masses on mental health. Awareness can go a long way in curbing stigma
