Musings & Meditations – December 2 2021

It’s International Day of Persons with Disability tomorrow, Friday 3rd December! Today I am sharing one of the moving quotes by Robin M. Eames from the anthology Growing Up Disabled in Australia.  

It takes a lot to persist in a world in which you are told you don’t belong, and disabled people have some of the most steely, steadfast instincts for survival that I’ve ever encountered. We must, if we are going to live in a world that doesn’t want us. Do not interpret this as inspirational. If anything it should be a call to action against injustice.

Standing Up To Stigma

It seems fitting to round up Mental Health month by focusing on the stigma that surrounds mental health. There is a lot we can do to make it easier for everyone if we tackle the issue of stigma.
