Mental health was, in the past, relatively under-researched and poorly understood. As a more-often-than-not invisible illness, mental health has previously been easy to dismiss. This was not helped by the very dramatic (and inaccurate) media representation of people who struggle with mental health. These factors, and many others, combined have contributed to stigma around mental health. This stigma can even exist if you are a sufferer of a psychological condition yourself. But one of the ways we can decrease this stigma is through educating ourselves and learning more.
If you are struggling with your mental health, take time to learn about what that might mean.
