From the title of this post, you might feel like this is going to be boring. I totally understand that. So I’ll do my best to make these facts as fun as possible.
Now let’s get the boring stuff out of the way first. The most obvious fact about mental health is that it is so important to be willing to learn. Mental health is always evolving and changing because it is different for everyone. Okay, you are probably tired of hearing me say that by now so we can get to the fun stuff.
In this post, I will go over three fun facts about mental health. I promise they will be interesting at least!
Fun Fact #1
On average, people dream about one to two hours every night. Now the more fun part is what the dreams are actually about. You actually have already experienced everything that you dream of. Now, why is this fun? You can learn so much from your dreams that I can guarantee you can use it in your daily life. You might be wondering how this is a mental health fact. You will see in other sections and in future sections of this website that mental health is universally relatable. Just to prove how incredible the meanings behind dreams are I have an awesome way you can know what any dream means. The Dream Interpretation Dictionary does a great job explaining dreams thoroughly and clearly. Images, people, and places that might not make sense will all add up now.
Fun Fact #2
If you were not intrigued by the first fact, don’t worry, this happens when you are awake. Did you know that six years of human life are spent dreaming? I know more dream stuff. I promise the last fact will not have anything to do with dreams. This fact is meant to reinforce the importance of dreams. If you are going to spend six years dreaming, wouldn’t it be so cool to understand what those dreams mean?
Fun Fact #3
Okay so I saved the most fun fact for last, at least I think so. Mental health is something that is been talked about as something negative. The concept of mental health is meant as just the opposite. This leads to my last fun fact and the main point of this post. Almost 50 million people in the United States live with a mental illness, and that does not even include people who struggle with mental health, because that would be everyone. Obviously to different degrees, but mental health is universal, and needs to be treated as normalized when people prioritize it.

Thank you for making these facts fun to read. I didn’t know that so many people struggled with mental health without having been diagnozed as such. And I do agree this is a universal topic. And that we most of the time view it in a negative way. But if we change our approach to it, more could take it more seriously.
Thank you so much for your thoughts! Changing the perception of mental health is so important!
You make a good point about how many people have mental issues. It really is time to change our collective attitude about how we think about people who have issues as we will all suffer from some aspect of a mental challenge at some time in our lives. Keeping a healthy mental attitude is so important to a balanced life. I’m fascinated by the whole analyzing dreams topic and will be following your link to see what my dreams are telling me, so interesting. Great facts.
