What will our world be like, if we all have better emotional literacy?

I often wonder what it will be like if we as a society, put the same amount of energy into teaching emotional literacy, as we do for numeracy, science, and literacy. 

I think it will happen, because we will simply have to. We all know about the rate of mental health issues in our communities.  So it will happen, but I just don’t know when. 

Having said that, I hope that it will be sooner rather than later. 

In the meantime, as a Health Professional, we will try and fill this gap the best that we can. Our schools may have a big role to play by introducing more emotional literacy related education to our schools. On an individual level, you can certainly learn more about emotionally literacy by staying curious, and seek relevant information in this area. 

It’s certainly not easy, but it is definitely a worthwhile pursuit.
