Language is the spine of communication, carrying the responsibility of transmitting ideas, emotions, and information from one mind to another.
Words play a vital role in our everyday lives – whether it’s conveying an idea, expressing an emotion or stating a desire.

‘Mental health’ is being used by well-meaning leaders and experts who are actually describing people’s ’emotional health’.
