Raise awareness EVERY SINGLE DAY for those who are suffering from a mental illness💚
1 in 4 people will suffer from some kind of mental illness during their lifetime, 971 million people worldwide suffer from some kind of mental illness. Many of these people suffer in silence, many of these people are refused help, many of these people have family members who will refuse to understand. So many people suffer alone when it comes to their mental illness, this shouldn't be happening.
Having a mental illness can be just as severe and debilitating than having a physical illness, however we do not receive the right support for this. The support that some of us get is horrible, we get blamed, we get told to just "get over it", we get told to "stop attention seeking", we get told that we are 'weak' and 'lazy' we are told that we have a 'choice' to not have a mental illness. THIS IS WRONG. The support that is given to someone who is suffering from a physical illness is the type of care that those who are suffering with a mental illness should receive such as, being cared for, being told that they'll be supported through it, being told "I'm here if you need anything", being told that the person is strong and courageous, why can't those including myself who are suffering with a mental illness receive the same care and support.
Physical illnesses can be awful, and they can also be debilitating. However so can a mental illness, BREAK THE STIGMA. RAISE AWARENESS. SPEAK FOR THOSE WHO DIDN'T GET THE CHANCE TO SPEAK. MENTAL HEALTH MATTERS TOO!💚
