I think schools should have a mandatory mental health class that you get a credit for , where you learn about depression, anxiety, eating disorders, schizophrenia, and other mental disorders. And you also learn good coping skills and ways to get help.

I hate when people say there mood is so bipolar. You have no idea what you are talking about.  It is a chronic mental illness that is beyond difficult to deal with at times! ~ Bipolar & all mental illnesses are not anyone's fault.  They cannot control it.  You can just live with it as best you can.
