Misconceptions of mental illness

Mental illness is more than what you see. Mental illness is deeper than it’s felt. Mental illness is harder than people know.

In today’s society, even with all the knowledge the world can offer, at our fingertips. We can still be ignorant to some topics. Mental illness is one vast area which still is shrouded in questions, misjudged, but everyone thinks they understand it.

We use throw away comments like “I feel depressed”. But what actually does it mean to “feel depressed”.

If we stop and think, learn about illnesses which are becoming more and more prevalent in our communities. We will find a large amount of people facing difficulties we never knew existed, feeling isolated in a crowded place and struggling to find hope.

As with physical health conditions, mental illness is equally as complex.

Lets look beyond what we see and think.
