She said, “I have a psychological balance to face any problem more smoothly because of taking care of my mental health and visiting a psychiatrist.”

She added: “The talk about mental health is Taboo, especially in our eastern societies, they still only consider that the insane is the one who goes to the psychiatrist, and this is what makes it imperative for us to break this barrier and fortify our psychological immunity because today more than ever before we face psychological pressures.” .
