It’s sad to me, that people so fear the things they don’t understand that they stigmatize those with a mental illness.
To show my support for those people and to help combat these stigmas, I will share once again, that I myself, am one of those people and I battle with depression. Depression is a mental illness and can be quite debilitating, especially if left unchecked.
It’s not easy but with the help of my doctor, family, writing and proper medication, I’m doing alright.
I encourage all of you to help combat further stigma and share a little bit about your life. Maybe you don’t have a story to share but that doesn’t mean you can’t stand up for someone that does.
No one should ever have to feel ashamed about a mental illness. There is far to much judgement or ridicule in this world and far too little understanding and compassion. Together we can change that…
Will you stand up against stigma?
