Ozymandias Posted November 15, 2020 Share Posted November 15, 2020 Does anyone else feel really irked by the constant reference to 'mental health'? Literally, every time I turn on the radio (don't have T.V.) I can guarantee that if it's not Covid or lockdown, then the first words that will jump out at me will be blah blah blah blah 'mental health'. I find it so sinister. It only seems in the last year or so that they've really been priming us to consider our 'mental health.' The lovely young royals champion our mental health, it seems they've got a real thing for helping us with our mental health with their mental health charities and so on, it seems to be a big concern of theirs. Now I'm all for people opening up, revealing their frailties and what have you, but all I get from this theme is the suggestion of 'you're fucking mad, don't you know', to the point that fairly everyday, normal people will subconsciously be seeded with thoughts of 'maybe I am utterly fucking nuts and I need urgent help.' What will the voices on t.v. and on the airwaves suggest next... wasn't it somethig like lithium in the water supply suggested a few months ago (can't quite remember the source, think it may have come from some research team in Brighton and Hove but don't quote me on it). I don't know, it's just something that jumps out at me constantly and I don't like , nor do I appreciate the drive and assumption behind it.
