Not A Funny Farm Anymore

“They’re coming to take me away - ha-ha, hee-hee, ho-ho - to the funny farm, where life is beautiful all the time!” (song written in 1966) Thankfully, times are changing. We don’t laugh about those who are struggling mentally and emotionally. We don’t call psychiatric institutions ‘funny farms’ anymore. Thankfully , times are changing. We have come to a better understanding of psychiatric conditions. We now know that there may well be a medical basis for particular mental difficulties. It’s there, in the DNA! Thankfully, times are changing. The stigma surrounding going to a mental health professional has diminished. People are more willing to be vulnerable - which is a strength. And a step toward developing healthy resilience. And I hope that times will continue to change. That we can keep our eyes open and see the value of every single person. And that we can become more connected to our soul as essential for a healthy and meaningful life.
