What It Is
Emotional Fluency is the skill of experiencing authentic emotion without judgment or attachment. It is the ability to sense, translate, and effectively apply the power of emotions in a healthy and productive way.
Why It's Important
Society gives us numerous messages implying it is weak to feel or show emotion. Those who express their feelings are often devalued, ridiculed, and judged. All these factors create a personal and societal resistance to emotion, hindering their ability to function as their best selves. While many of us never learned how to talk about our emotions in a professional setting, it is time we take this step towards breaking the stigmas around mental health in the workplace and the world.
Listen to our Founder speak on Emotional Fluency.
More than half of people with Mental Illness do not seek help for their disorders. Often, people avoid pursuing treatment due to concerns about being treated differently or fears of losing their jobs and livelihood. Stigma causes people to feel ashamed for something that is out their control and prevents people from seeking the help they need. Join us in breaking the stigmas surrounding mental health.
The goal of this campaign is to empower people to showcase their emotional fluency by sharing how they sustain a positive mental mindset.
We want to hear your story, choose any or all of the following ways to express your #EmotionalFluency:
Submit a blog about your mental health journey
Submit a video sharing how you express your emotional fluency
Submit a video of you reciting your favorite inspirational quote
When troubled, there are things you can get from a silent devoted dog companion that no other source can give you
