All month long I will share important information, tips, and ways you can help support yourself or someone you know who suffers!💚
Is Depression Real??
Depression is a real illness as it involves the mental, emotional and even physical faculties of the person. It is not just a transient sad feeling that will go away when one wills it to. There are symptoms and signs as well as corresponding treatment. If not handled properly and immediately, it may escalate to worse conditions. Like any other illness, depression has also variations.
What Is Mental Illness??
A mental illness is an illness the affects that way people think, feel, behave, or interact with others. There are many different mental illnesses, and they have different symptoms that impact peoples’ lives in different ways.
Mental Illness Can Effect Just About Anyone!!
Mental illness does not discriminate; it can affect anyone regardless of your age, gender, geography, income, social status, race/ethnicity, religion/spirituality, sexual orientation, background or any aspect of cultural identity.
A person with mental illness needs a lot of support from the people he or she trusts. The family members and the friends is the best source of love and support. The best thing to do is to show some compassion and understanding, the person is sad enough as it is, they don’t need to feel alone and alienated.
Once a person has been diagnosed with mental illness people should learn about the effects the disorder has on an afflicted person’s behavior and personality. This way, we won’t be shocked and taken aback by the changes in the person. We should not take personally whatever the depressed person does.
A big part of helping someone who suffers from mental illness; is to stop 🚫 the stigma around it!!
I look forward to educating you all month long on this topic as it’s so near and dear to me,
