Mental illness is often misunderstood by many and sometimes we dismiss it as being sad, lazy, problematic or crazy. These stigmas that societies carry is one of the main the reasons why people with mental illness are still suffering in silence. In extreme cases, mental illness can lead someone to believe that suicide is the only way to end the pain they are living with. Together, we can start to break the stigma and learn about mental illnesses. The first step is to understand what the illnesses are and how to offer help. Many people don’t realize that people with mental health illness can lead a normal healthy life when they have the right support from their loved ones.
