The Importance of Mental Health
Everyone struggles with their mental health at some point. Stress,
grief, depression, anxiety, loneliness – not to mention mental illnesses like
bi-polar disorder, ADHD, and PTSD.
Although perception of mental illness has improved over the
past decade, it still an overlooked and neglected aspect of
ones’ well-being, largely due to media stereotypes and lack of education.
And because mental health is “invisible,”
people tend to attach negative stigmas to mental health conditions
at a far higher rate than to other more “visible” diseases, such as
cancer, diabetes or heart disease.
StarMan Studios is about community. Without a support system to safely
express themselves in a no judgement zone, people start to suppress their own
emotions, leading to further isolation.
With the “Stay Sturdy, My Friends” initiative, we want to create a
place where you can talk openly, see others’ stories, and hopefully find that
what you’re going through is normal. You’re not weird or broken.
Stay Sturdy is not exclusively for voice actors. We accept anyone who is in
need of an open ear, and is accepting of others. We welcome all genders,
identities, sexual orientations, religious beliefs, age, location,
personal beliefs, etc.
Stay Sturdy is a support group of creatives for creatives.
