Lets Talk About Mental Health

mental illness is a thing.. 1 in 4 people…

there’s a social stigma attached to mental health.. from what i’ve seen.. more people have a harder time dealing with the stigma than the mental illness..

depression – what we’re not doing is talking about it..

as humans we hate being out of control… so we sweep it under the rug..

what we’re not being told about suicide and depression:

For nearly two decades, Big Pharma commercials have falsely told Americans that mental illness is associated with a chemical brain imbalance, but the truth is that mental illness and suicidality are associated with poverty, unemployment, and mass incarceration. 


These lengthy results, for example, include extensive evidence that involvement in the criminal justice system (such as being on parole or probation) is highly correlated with suicidality, depression, and serious mental illness. Yet Americans are not told that preventing unnecessary involvement with the criminal justice system—for example, marijuana legalization and drug use decriminalization—could well prove to be a more powerful antidote to suicidality, depression, and serious mental illness than medical treatment.
