Reducing the academic mental health stigma can save lives.

I would like to thank the Chief Editor of Nature Reviews Urology Annette Fenner for the invitation to write about academic mental health and my own lived experience. I am honored and grateful about this opportunity and think that it is wonderful to give this important subject another big platform:

    When we watch Sheldon Copper in Big Bang Theory, we like to laugh at his anxiety disorder. From myself and some of my colleagues, I know that this is common in people whose brains are trained to think everything through to the end, and it takes away any joy in life.
    Anna, thank you for your work and your courage to talk openly about it. I wish I had the courage too!
    This topic is so important.

    Dear Heinrich, your answer resonates perfectly with me. I am that overthinker, who is thinking everything through the end and taking away the joy in life and spontaneity. In fact so much so that if everything is going well my mind find something to worry about. It has become my habit that if life is going on perfectly well then I get panic and start thinking that live should not be anxiety free and my mind actually find something to worry about. This is been going on for years. There are lot of ups and downs. I am still trying to cope up with it. Glad that you expressed it. And I never had the courage to express it to my near and dear ones till now.
