JOYday Movement was created May 2016 to shed a light on the importance of mental health as well as mental illness(es). According to the NAMI, approximately 1 in 5 adults experience a mental illness within a given year. However, our mental health is still seen as the elephant in the room. We believe that the only way to change the way mental health is perceived is to spark a conversation around it. We believe that our mental health is worth taking care of and your mental illness is not a liability.
We have created a safe space for people to share their stories and find their JOY throughout their journey. We believe that choosing joy is choosing to know that no matter what may happen life, you will be okay. Happiness is an emotion which can be replaced by sadness but joy is something that can not be replaced.
Today will never come again. Be joyful. Do something for you. Keep the peace. Live out loud.
How are you feeling, this morning?
