An idea worth spreading

The ways to achieve happiness are as many as the individuals who pursue them. Different individuals have different ways to experience happiness, and to express it. If we talk about changing mental healthcare interventions and education in a way that can provide the best treatment and curricula for people with different needs, it is also time to understand that to achieve well-being and happiness also doesn't translate into one fixed formula, where everyone has to be smiling all the time, even if that works for some individuals.
