The recent news regarding the death of brian stokes, a popular author, speaker, and mental health advocate, is a wake-up call for all of us. His death comes on the heels of a rise in the number of suicides in the U.S. and Canada, and the recent news that two of his books have already been pulled from stores as a result of threats that he had made against his own mental health.
This morning, two of the three major reviewers I’ve tried to update a number of times since the event took place have also been named in the news. One of their reviews was, “How would I know you weren’t a ghost?” The other reviewer is, “Why do you have a ghost?” I’m not sure. But I think the review is interesting.
As you know, Ben Stokes was the editor of The Man Booker Prize winning bestseller, The Hunger and The Wolf. And last year, the US Postal Service announced that they were banning him from sending mail to Canada, the US, or the UK. He was also the editor of the UK publication The Telegraph, which was shut down after publishing a number of articles about its relationship with the British secret service.
That last point is really important because it means that the ban will be enforced against any UK citizen who has been publishing articles critical of the US Government. If any of these UK authors get a notice from the US Postal Service that they may be banned from using their postal service to get mail to Canada, the UK, and the US, then they will have to move to Canada or the UK. Ben Stokes has also been able to go to court and fight his UK ban.
In 2007 Ben Stokes was jailed in the UK by the UK Government for making a series of anti-US articles. In 2009 Stokes was again jailed in the UK for the same reason, this time for three months. This time Stokes has been able to get a US court to reverse the ban and allow him to write for the website Steemit.
When you get into a strange situation that has nothing to do with your physical health, you have to make a mental decision and make a decision based on what your health and safety has been about. If you’ve got no health insurance, you will be given a card and given a list of things you’re going to be allowed to do.
The Steemit article that Stokes wrote for us earlier in the day is a great example of how mental health can be affected by our habits. For many people, it is the first time in their lives that they are able to take the lead on something. This is not something that many people plan on doing. It is a bit of a wake-up call, and a great reminder that there are others who are as committed to using their platform as you are to using yours.
We’re not suggesting that our mental health is inherently bad. Our hope is that it helps us to be a little more conscious of how we interact with the world around us and the people in it. This is especially important for young professionals who may be struggling with mental health issues. As we write in the new Steemit article, it is not often that you find out that your employer is a serial killer. You may not even know that you even have one.
Mental health is not something we can take lightly. For many of us, it’s a life sentence, and we’re not really sure what to do about it. Steemit is a platform that helps to make the process of getting help a little easier. In Steemit we have a mental health advocate who can contact you if you need help.
We are also in the process of creating a Steemit group so that you, as a Steemit user, can chat with others who have the same issue. Mental health is something that seems to be on people’s minds right now, and we are creating a way to easily connect with others who are struggling with mental health issues.
