Does family and friends contribute to our mental health while growing up?

A good environment for persons with disability while upbringing contributes a lot the mental health, supportive friends who include you in their games and such go an extra mile creating a holistic person.

Family give you that acceptability, in that however the world it is, you still got a safe space.

What's yours experience?

    This is definitely yes. We all are in one way or the other shaped by the environment and the people we interact with in both mindsets and behaviors. How we think is largely influenced by the families we come from and the friends we surround ourselves with. With this in consideration, I believe even our mental health is greatly affected by our families' and friends big time.

    They say home is where the heart is and a friend sticks closer than a brother. If family and friends aren't supportive then it would be very hard for persons with disabilities to accept themselves because we look up to our parents for motivation and support in our lives.

    I've seen how parents of pwds go out their way to help their children. This makes the kid know the worth of responsibility and sticking through it till the very end. Plus it builds character in the pwd to always give it their all in life even when faced with adversity.
