i think a fair point to be made is that mental illness should be treated as any other chronic illness. currently, it’s not. there is still a stigma attached…so people dont even feel comfortable admitting they have mental illness.
if you look at something like getting hired, are you going to tell an employer you suffer from PTSD? Or possibly — wait hold for it — bipolar disorder? most likely not.
#StopTheStigma. we’re all human beings here. lets start embracing that humanity.
and, i do appreciate your passion. absolutely.
