Jo

After suffering from mental health problems for many years now I have become aware of a huge stigma surrounding mental health. I have heard so many negative, judgmental things said about ill mental health and it's sickening. I have had many assumptions made about me like people saying I'm attention seeking or that I'm making things up and many more. I want there to be a day where mental illness is treated like any other illness because it's just as serious and sometimes more so because unlike physical illness you can't see it.
