For most people with a mental disorder, there is no alternative to medication. You wouldn’t tell someone with a physical illness to just “spend more time outdoors” would you? There’s no difference.

Next time you catch yourself responding to someone’s concern with “i’m fine”, why not try telling them what’s really going on? ❣️ You might be surprised with how supportive others can be.

Socialising can be very difficult for people with mental illnesses. You’re not alone with your struggles. ❣️

Many of us suffer from not being able to recognise outbursts own symptoms until it’s too late. A therapist can help you recognise your early warning signs so that you can prevent a full-scale episode. All you have to do is reach out for help and commit to receiving it. ❣️

Look back only to see how far you’ve come, and look forward to keep going further. ❣️

It’s not easy, but it’s totally worth it: spend some time learning to love yourself. You’ll thank yourself for it. ❣️

Most of us are familiar with the concept of self-sabotage. It happens. Find out why, get support, and keep trying. ❣️

The keys to dealing with a mental illness: support, medication, and therapy. Yet how hard is it to accept support, take our medication regularly, and apply what we learn in therapy? Sometimes it seems impossible. But you’re not alone in your struggles.❣️
