Mental ill-health isn't taken seriously. People treat it as a joke. How is it fair that someone should try their hardest to help others all their lives and put their own needs and wants aside time and time again should be shoved aside when they need help desperately? How is it fair that people with mental health issues should be treated like they are worthless? How is it fair that they should be driven to suicide because people who have never experienced mental health issues judge them harshly and won't try to help them? I've been in that place and it's horrible. How is it fair for people to assume just because someone has mental health problems that they are a bad person and undeserving of help? Why is it so hard for people to show compassion to those in severe emotional pain and offer to HELP that person? I seriously wish people would realise that mental health problems are just as much a disability as being in a wheelchair or having an amputated limb or something.
