  3. Jonathan says

    Being mentally ill sucks. They say "chemical imbalance", give you prescribed drugs and they don't even work. How do we even know who's telling the truth behind most of what we read and hear? The only credible source is your body and mind, and your ethical, reasonable thinking.

  9. Todd Denny says How one campus is reinventing mental health

  10. Ramesh Kumaran says

    I have been called mental, jerk,… Used abusive language and also physically assaulted. Will they call a blind, deaf, dumb, mute and those with locomotor disabilities by their illness. Or describe them in a funny way. Use pun against them. Will they address them as hey you blind as a newborn pussy ,
    Hey you cat and rat (cataract)
    hey you deaf as a bat,
    hey you dumb ass,
    Hey you hypertensive
    Hey you sugary diabetic
    Hey you cardiac case
    Hey you bariatric ware house
    hey you chicken legged etc. No. Such terminologies and similar attitudes and behaviors are invented only for people who have mental health issues .

  11. Ramesh Kumaran says

    If society and psychiatrists and our judiciary wants to change us from abnormals to normals then it's a good idea. But if this transformation takes a lifetime due to perverted societal perception and useless drugs and meanwhile you are forced to live an isolated existence then its a self defeating endeavour on the part of our society.
    Physically handicapped do not face issues of stigma and victimization. On the contrary they are pampered and given freebies like free loan, free job sans competition, free houses, free this, free that. Everything comes free. No price tags attached. They get everything for free. But people with mental health issues have to compete with the normals for resources by the rules set down by them and for them. We should be judged by a set of rules as prescribed by our illness. If physically challenged do not have to compete with their normal counterparts then why are we being forced to?They have their own paraolympics. Where only physically disabled participates.

  12. Ramesh Kumaran says

    When you loose every things that you most cherished in your life, then that's a huge disaster. And that isn't normal. Personally I would like to be considered as a psychologically challenged person having mental health issues which demands a different set of behavior from others and expectations. That's how others should show their consideration. Unfortunately in India, that's far from the truth. You are not only stigmatized here, but also victimized at every walk of your life. That doesn't sound normal at all. People who have obesity, hypertension, diabetes are considered normal because the criteria for normalcy is dictated largely by our politics, ministry of health, judiciary, human resource ministry, culture, tradition, societal values, peer groups and their combined distorted and perverted perception of mental illness. Otherwise they won't allocate a meagre 40 crores for mental health program and thousands and thousands of crores to some other preventable health issue. This is discrimination. This again isn't normal.

  13. Sigita Diamond says

    Talking about it is great, but it doesn’t solve the problem for example psychosis is such a hard thing to explain no one can even comprehend how hard it is. Doctors never solve the problem people need therapy and. No one should judge…

  14. Jodie Silbaugh says

    This video is gentle, and there is help, but, not everything works for everyone, and, so dont give up. I also find, if I can get outside, that is a big help! Also, eating good food, and laughing about almost everything, life is too short to be sad, helps my thoughts.

  15. TheDodoRex says

    Why are you depressed just be happy

  16. Tracie Attword says

    I've given up. I get good then it comes bk 10x worse.

  17. Fergal Oneill says
