Today is World Mental Health Day, and in an effort to raise awareness of the it, Twitter users have been sharing their own thoughts and experiences with mental health and psychiatric illness.
From offering advice on navigating periods of illness to sharing insights on the importance of tackling the issue in the workplace, Twitter users have been vocal, and will continue to be so throughout the day.
Removing the stigma of mental health issues is the name of the game, and Twitter is on top of it.

Your mental health is just as important as your physical health. Your feelings are valid. It's okay to talk about it. #WorldMentalHealthDay

This #WorldMentalHealthDay we don’t all need to be psychotherapists or psychiatrists or mental health nurses. We can do a great deal of good by just making a friend a cup of tea and listening #ItsOkNotToBeOk

It can be caused by anything or nothing.
By someone or no one.
It's ok to speak up when your mind is a battlefield. #WorldMentalHealthDay
