Almost one year into the pandemic, are we finally learning to prioritize mental health?

Isolated and threatened with illness and death; depression, anxiety, paranoia & OCD have had the chance to tighten their hold and become an even stronger unwelcome presence.
As the world battles the pandemic we must also be ready to fight the current mental health crisis.
Honest dialogue is having a positive effect, more than ever before we are acknowledging the importance of both our physical and mental health.
