With good mental health I have peace, not strife.
I’m happy for once in my life!
My mind’s a safe haven that’s void of pain
And still I have lots more to gain!
Some years ago I was fearful inside
Regardless of how hard I tried
And so I sought help and then I gained ground.
Just look at the peace I have found!
Many good changes, where should I begin?
I have these new feelings within!
Rarely do I stress, I can relax now.
I’m happy, serene and here’s how:
I spoke to the doctor telling her all.
She listened; It didn’t appall.
I got further help but waited a while
And afterwards I can now smile!
I’m much stronger now but not perfect yet!
But this doesn’t cause me to fret
Because who is perfect? I’m know I’m not!
Instead I’m content with my lot.
Skills I have learned make me braver each day
And though there’ll be toil on the way
I’m ready for battles! Ready for war!
Bring it on! I’ll settle the score!
I try helping others to help me too.
Together, we’ll all make it through
And as a result, I now have a goal
To help others make themselves whole.
So if you need help your first step should be
To visit your doctor or see
What other support can help you nearby
Until you can lift your head high!
No matter how awful you feel inside
Or how much support you have tried
You’re not beyond help, no one is, it’s true
All darkness can be broken through.
I broke through darkness and now I convey
Ways to fight your illness away.
I only do this through good mental health
So join me with great mental wealth!
