Mental Health: LIVE with it.
What if the problem wasn’t mental health, but rather societies perspective of it? What if it’s only a problem because we make it one?
The Back Story
Dealing with mental illness doesn't have to bring your life to a halt. Many people live with mental health issues and you would never know it. We go about our lives, we contribute, we are smart, intelligent, creative, funny and loving people. We sometimes have a hard time convincing ourselves of that fact though. People who live with mental health issues are strong! The key word in all of this is, LIVE! Mental health doesn't define who we are. We do.
People suffering with mental health issues will probably tell you that the scariest thing to face and confront is their own minds. Because it’s the one thing that fucks with us the most. It can be dark, scary and can utterly destroy us in the blink of an eye.
