Ledley 27 days ago Celtic, Australia 40 1195 Australia is engaging in a mental health awareness month for Men in november. It is called Movember. People are encouraged to grow a mow, moustache, to prevent men and their mates suffering alone. So, I am just wondering how active everyone here is? a. Do you play football or sports? b. Do you engage with your community outside of your computer and internet? c. Do you yourself suffer from a mental illness or know a friend or family member who does? YOU can make a difference. I recently got discharged from a private mental health unit, and on leaving i realised just how much i lived my life in recluse. My life had become a few computer games, this forum and calling 1 friend per month who lives overseas. Only through discussing this with others in groups was I able to see this. I got discharged today and although i am not 100%, my recovery started when i left the ward and I am no longer interested in hiding away from life and keepin it all to myself. If you don't want to participate that is also fine. I'll kick it off.
