I’m Monica Guya a story teller, journalist and blogger from Kisumu, Kenya.
Since you’re here, you’re probably wondering what mental health has to do with climate change. Why do I choose to focus on these two subjects?
I suffer from a mental disorder, PTSD and I want to normalize the conversations around mental health. If 1 in 4 people suffer from a mental disorder globally, we can’t afford to ignore the impact it has not only on our world but our day to day life.
As for my green stories, we have a climate crisis because of consumer behaviour. We are grappling with pollution and what to do with more plastic than we need because of our habits, our choices. What changes can we make to change the narrative because climate change is everyone’s problem and we need to start treating it as such?
Last but not least, are Monica’s Musings. I’m not a square, in fact I’m eclectic, therefore I’m interested in mental health, climate change and I love dogs. This is a section where I talk about my personal experiences living with PTSD and life in general.
I hope you learn something while being entertained at the same time.
