Mental Illness: The Stigma of Silence

"What mental health needs is more sunlight, more candor, more unashamed conversation."

~ Elyn Saks, law professor & author of "The Center Cannot Hold," a memoir of her struggle with schizophrenia.

The strongest people are not those who show strength in front of us but those who win battles we know nothing about.

YES. People are not bipolar, schizophrenic, eating disorders or any other illness. they HAVE these illnesses, but there is so much more to them.

More like it is family, friends and/or the person you're in a relationship who tells you you are "selfish", "egocentric", etc. and makes you feel guilty because they don't have the compassion, empathy or understanding of your illness (i.e. depression and anxiety).

This pin provides information for schizophrenia awareness. Read over the statistics, then visit the website. Read the information provided in the 'What is mental health?' tab, then listen to the video about young people with mental illnesses on the home page. I hope it provides you with a better understand of mental health, and its prevalence in youth. You are not alone!
