Mental day. Mental post.

Another ‘World Mental Health Awareness Day’ passing by.

With a staggering statistics of the burden of mental and behavioral disorders ranging from 9.5 to 102 per 1000 population in India, the risk is real, the cry is real. According to WHO, approximately one million people commit suicide each year worldwide, that is about one death every 40 seconds or 3,000 per day.

Song of the week: Eye of the Storm

Mmm, when my hopes and dreams are far from me
And I’m runnin’ out of faith
I see the future I picture slowly fade away
And when the tears of pain and heartache 
Are pouring down my face
I find my peace in Jesus’ name
In the eye of the storm (yeah, yeah)
You remain in control (yes you do, Lord)
In the middle of the war
You guard my soul
You alone are the anchor
When my sails are torn
Your love surrounds me (Your love surrounds me) 
In the eye of the storm (in the eye of the storm)

Song of the week: Always

My foes are many, they rise against me

But I will hold my ground

I will not fear the war, I will not fear the storm

My help is on the way, my help is on the way

Oh, my God, He will not delay

My refuge and strength always

I will not fear, His promise is true

My God will come through always, always
