End The Stigma

Mental illness is not contagious. You can’t catch it by being around me or touching me. Just because someone suffers from a mental illness does not mean they are “crazy”. Just because you don’t understand it, doesn’t mean it isn’t so. I am the same person I was before you found out I had a mental illness. Mental health matters! Mental illness is just that, an illness, a disorder. Mental illness does not define who I am as a person. Don’t let your ignorance define you.
