Mental Health – Voices

“Mental illness doesn’t define the people who are living with it nor should other people judge them based on that.”
Harrisburg, PA
I would say that mental illness has been frowned upon for many years now. People are not acknowledging mental illness due to the stigma that is attached to the term.

People who encounter a mental illness encounter an imbalance in their bodily chemicals, which to me means that it causes mood swings and other mental instabilities. What people fail to realize is that people that have a mental illness are simply living with the mental illness.

Mental illness doesn’t define them nor should other people judge them based on that. I personally know people that have a mental illness because I work with them. This experience has allowed me to view life from their perspective and to understand what mental illness is.
