Stigma – Acceptance – How Mental Illness Shows

I want to talk about mental illness acceptance and how it shows in different people.

It’s difficult, a struggle, to socialize, to accept if someone is mentally ill. They don’t understand. They don’t try to understand. That’s the reason people who are mentally ill keep it to themselves.

Depression – apathy, crying, anger
Bipolar Disorder – emotional ups and downs
Post Traumatic Stress Disorder – flashbacks
Anxiety – inhibited (try but can’t)
Schizophrenia – fear
Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder – attention all over the place
Postpartum Depression – apathy, fear, anger, inhibition
Borderline Personality Disorder – anger
