Mental Illness Awareness

Mental Illness – Do You Know? was created to increase the mental illness awareness, based on personal experiences I’ve had with loved Mental Illness Awarenessones who have lived with the debilitating affects of mental illness.

Most people have acquired the knowledge of mental illness awareness through articles written by doctors and other medical professionals, who have not lived with mental illness or experienced the affects through a loved one.

This website will include articles related to mental illness, but will be hand chosen, to share with you, and written by those who have experienced mental illness first hand. Topics will include agoraphobia, anxiety, bipolar, depression, eating disorders, OCD, PTSD, personality disorders or schizophrenia.

A MUST READ FOR ANYONE WITH A MENTAL ILLNESS

Article: Why is sharing our mental health story important?

 

People wonder why I share my story? So that someday no one will call me brave for acknowledging a very real illness. Because the world would be a better place if everyone shared their story - and if more people listened.
