This is the greatest thing I have ever seen. People do not understand that mental illnesses, such as depression, are actual chemical imbalances in your body. They are not brought on by choice. My dad was diagnosed with depression. He was so ashamed of it that he hid it from me and my brothers. A month later, he killed himself. The stigma that comes with mental illness made my Dad embarrassed to talk to his own kids about this problem because he felt like less of a man.
Erase the stigma. The more we talk about mental illness, the less likely it will end in suicide.
this x100000. if you have a sore throat and someone suggests to go to the doctor, no one would be offended, but if someone seems troubled, it’s “not right” to offer that maybe they should go see someone, a professional who they can talk to. Mental health is just as important as physical. It is just as harmful and fatal. Change that negative view that comes with asking for mental health. Erase the stigma of being treated by a psychologist. Find help, help others find help.
