Everyone knows about the stigma around mental illnesses. Everyone knows the harsh, and hurtful things that’s been said, and still being said today, about people who struggle with a mental illness. All the stigma needs to end, because we are all humans. Just because someone has cancer does that make them different? No right? Ok. Just because someone has a mental illness, that doesn’t make them different. The mental illness doesn’t define them. Calling someone with a mental illness ‘crazy’ or ‘insane’ or saying “suck it up” or “you chose to be this way” won’t make things go away. It’ll make things worse, and they’ll just isolate themselves. Take time to learn about mental illnesses, and ways to help your loved one, or whomever. Do research on the mental illness your loved one, or friend, is dealing with, and educate yourself about other types of mental illnesses.
Stop with all the negative, hurtful, and ignorant, remarks about people with mental illnesses. Those people with a mental illness are still humans, and they do have feelings! Showing some compassion to those who struggle with a mental illness, would be classy! Being judged for something you can’t control, and others think you can control it, if you just tried to. You can’t, and won’t understand something, if you haven’t gone through it. All of the negative stigma, causes those with a mental illness, to not get help. Feeling ashamed, and embarrassed, they rather deal with it, on their own. And that is a lot of baggage! Stop the stigma about mental illnesses, especially if it’s something you’ve never had to deal with or, if you’ve never experienced it. How can you judge it?
Stop the stigma around mental illnesses, give those who struggle with a mental illness reassurance, and a listening ear for a change. Like I said, show some compassion. Listen, and let those explain the pain, feelings, guilt, emotions, and thoughts of having a mental illness, and the nightmare days it brings with it. Showing people with a mental illness reassurance, and letting them know that having a mental illness is okay, would help them open up, and talk about it. Stop saying things like “you’re crazy” or “you’re retarded,” because words do matters! Choose your words carefully, what you say is important. Try being supportive and helpful. Avoiding those stigmatizing statements, could actually help stop the shame and fear that’s regularly linked with mental illness. Those people living with depression fear being judged, and that right there, is a big reason people avoid healing, avoid getting treatment.
No one expects their loved one or friend to “get over” cancer or diabetes, but it’s regularly the response when someone with depression expresses his or her feelings and emotions. “get over it” might be the worst thing anyone can say to someone with depression. “Clinical depression is definitely not a choice. No one chooses to be depressed. Come on now. Also, no depression is neither a moral failing, a weakness of will or a ghost of the imagination. Depression is a medical disorder, a biological disruption of brain chemistry linked to and triggered by some combination of genetics, family history, past trauma, stress and other elements.
Some other ways to end the stigma about/around mentalillnesses.
Talk openly about mental health, put the shame, and embarrassment to an end.
Show those who talk negative about people with mental illnesses, that you aren’t crazy and that you’re going to make it. Show them that you aren’t insane, you have a brain, just like them, your brain just overthinks at times.
Encourage equality between physical and mental illness.
Choose empowerment over shame.
Be conscious of language.
Treat those with a mental illness with dignity and some respect.
Stop using degrading words about people with a mental illness.
Don’t ever assume someone is okay just because they look or act okay or sometimes smile or laugh.
Depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses can often be hidden, but the person can actually still be in considerable internal distress. Support them, provide reassurance especially, when you know someone is struggling to manage their mental illness.
Finding different opportunities to pass on facts and positive attitudes about people with mental health problems, is a great start.
Stop using hurtful, and derogatory languages, the way you speak can affect the way other people think and speak. Simple
Promote positive messages of respect, hope, and, recovery, on social media. Everywhere.
For many who already carry such a heavy burden, stigma is an unacceptable addition to their pain.
Educate yourself and others.
Don’t be insensitive or blame people with mental illnesses.
Be aware of your behaviour and attitudes. You can change the way you think. See people as humans and not as labels, or stereotypes. See far pass a person’s mental health.
STOP THE STIGMA AROUND MENTAL ILLNESSES/MENTAL HEALTH!
STOP THE STIGMA AROUND MENTAL ILLNESSES ESPECIALLY IF YOU HAVE NEVER EXPERIENCED IT!
For those struggling with a mental illness, don’t be ashamed or embarrassed because you have no reason to be. Get the help you need, don’t try to do it on your own because you won’t succeed. It’ll just get worse, and that won’t be a good outcome. Put your mental health first, get the help you need, and watch the difference. I promise you, getting the help that you need, and making sure you take all your medicines, give yourself time to heal, and staying away from the negative, things can and will get better.
Hello guys!! How is everyone’s Sunday going? I hope and pray all is well with each and every one of you. I wish nothing but the best for all of you. I want to apologize for my lack of posts for the past few weeks. I am truly sorry my dears for my lack of posts, I had so much going on. Another one of my cousins died, and I just needed some time to get my mind right. You know? I’m sure you all understand how it is to lose a loved one. Especially, if you’re used to seeing that person everyday, or on a regular. Also, I still struggle from time to time with major depression and anxiety. But I’m doing much better today, and just like any other day, even my bad days… I won’t give up. Even though sometimes I feel like it, I won’t quit. I have my son that looks up to me, his name is Jayden. He loves me dearly, and I love him dearly with all my heart and soul. I’m not perfect at all, and I can’t help that I struggle with a mental illness, I don’t want to be like this I didn’t choose this. Trust me, if I had a choice this something I would run from. Lol. A little joke doesn’t hurt, especially when you’re covering the pain from words. Accept my apology?
I am truly sorry everyone, I will make sure that I don’t lack so many posts anymore. Because ending the stigma around mental illnesses is important to me. The way people with mental illnesses are treated is ridiculous and ignorant.
I want people with mental illnesses to know that yes you do have a mental illness, but you are still human, that doesn’t make you different at all. I want people with mental illnesses to know that you are not alone, and you don’t have to struggle alone. There is help out there. The stigma around mental illnesses needs to end. That’s why i will keep blogging about it, and spreading the word about it.
The stigma about mental illnesses is truly sad and rude. If you ask me, it’s actually very cruel. Those who struggle with a mental illness or more is still human. Calling someone ‘crazy’ or ‘insane’ isn’t cool at all. Having a mental illness is hard as it is, and for people to down talk someone with a mental illness, having no type of experience of it, is just ignorance. Period!
This poem is about mental illnesses, feelings, and the stigma that comes with it. It’s no game, and i really wish people would understand. Mental illnesses are real, and can even be severe. You are not alone, and you have nothing to be ashamed of. You aren’t the first and definetly won’t be the last, go get help because your mental health matters! This too shall pass.
Keep The Faith And Pray, And Know That One DAY This Will Pass!!!

Hello 👋🏾 Everyone!! This Is Just Something I Wrote. Sometimes Depression Can Really Make Your Mind Think Things You Yourself Wouldn’t Think Or Things That’s Not True About You. But Depression Doesn’t Define You. Just Because You Feel Hopeless Doesn’t Mean Your Hopeless. 🤷🏽♀️💯😉 Depression A Have You Hating Everybody And Most Times For Nothing. You Won’t Understand Depression Unless You’ve Dealt With It. Like Today Was A Good Day For Me But My Depression Wouldn’t Let Me Be. I Ended Up Sad And Guilty At The End Of Today. I Just Feel So Restless But Can’t Go To Sleep. Hopefully Soon Sleep Will Find Me Lol(Haha). Until then I’ll Just Find A Good Movie To Watch On Netflix. I’m So Mad And Upset Orange Is The New Black Won’t Be Airing No more! That Was The Reason I Watched Netflix. 🤦🏾♀️ (Sigh) Oh Well!! There’s Nothing I Can Do About It. Which Sucks! I’ll Have To Find Another Interesting Show To Watch. That Hot Warn Bath 🛀 Felt Great! Along With Bubbles! Omg! (Heaven) 😂🤷🏽♀️ I’m About To Find Something To Eat And Relax. My Son Gone So I’m Child Free. Which I Be Missing Him But We Call’s Each Other When He’s Not With Me Or I Check Up On Him. I Could Never Get Him To Go Somewhere Now He’s Always Gone Almost. He’s Growing Up On Me. Even Though He Just Go By His Dad But At Times He Wouldn’t Want To Go. He Would Never Want To Leave Momma. I Know He’s Just Growing Up But He’s Going To Always Be My Baby Boy. So, How Was Everyone’s Day? I Hope It Was A Great/Blessed One. I Hope It Wasn’t A Rough One. If It Was Just Dust That Off And Continue To Do What’s Right. Sometimes That Can Be Hard But Think About It, You Wouldn’t Want To Give That Person The Satisfaction Of Knowing They Can Easily Turn Your Smile To A Frown Right? Ever Heard Of Kill Them With Kindness? Do Just That! ✊🏾💯🥰✅
