Mental health comes to the scene. Poetic Jam at MUSAC

15 Oct. 2021 | SOLTRA

The group CreACCIÓN Mental has read a manifesto, within the framework of World Mental Health Day, in which it has stressed the importance of “talking and asking for help” in the face of suicidal ideation because “there is always a way out”. In addition, its members have starred in a poetic jam demonstrating an unlimited creative capacity.

No one is exempt from suffering from mental illness throughout their lives. For this reason, the group CreACCIÓN Mental has come on stage to emphasize the importance of “talking and asking for help” in the face of suicidal ideation because “there is always a way out before taking your own life.” There are always reasons to fight.

This has been made clear in the reading of the manifesto prepared on the occasion of a World Mental Health Day (October 10) that, under the slogan ‘Mental health, a necessary right. Tomorrow you can be you’, has had for the first time as a stage the Museum of Contemporary Art of Castilla y León (MUSAC).

A cultural epicenter in which users of the mental health network of the health area of León have raised their voices to denounce the lack of resources at the community level with a ratio of professionals three times lower than the European average: six per 100,000 inhabitants.

“Only people who suffer from illness in the soul or mental energy know what we suffer when we have a crisis,” they have confessed to, in a row, claim greater efforts for their employability by appealing to the sensitivity of the business fabric in an exile to the stigma that weighs on them.

“We ask that we not be dismissed and that, although the pressure of a normal job costs us a lot of sacrifice, we can offer society aid of another kind or another way,” they have made clear.

“We would like our contribution to society to be received without doubt or misgivings, as well as to have access to justice in conditions of equality,” they added.

Likewise, in a commitment to inclusive language, they have called to leave aside expressions such as “this is crazy!”, in the same way that they have demanded “airs of normality”: “Suffering from a serious illness is not an excuse to treat us differently and deny us many essential things”.

“The corners of the brain are wide and complex, and if we do not act with commitment and affection, they will become obsolete”,they have pointed out firmly convinced that “the possibility of choosing your thoughts is what makes life an exciting journey”.

Finally, and under the umbrella of respect, they have called to tear down, once and for all, those invisible walls that part of society, still today, raises in front of the psychic sick putting barriers to their recovery: “Let’s add efforts and hopes, let’s subtract misgivings and insecurities and we will achieve the goal we all yearn for.”

CreACCIÓN Mental is made up of members of the Psychiatric Day Hospital of the University Assistance Complex of León (CAULE), as well as Santa Isabel, Fundación Solidaridad y Trabajo Virgen del Camino (Soltra), Asociación Salud Mental León, Fundación Tutelar FECLEM and the Psychosocial Rehabilitation Center (CRPS) of the San Juan de Dios Hospital in León.
