Why you should never be ashamed of having a mental health condition 💗

I know how difficult it is to control, I know the intensity of your reactions, I know the stigma, that others should find reason to be scared of you. What society doesn’t appreciate is the way the brain can create abnormal connections through the neurotransmitters affecting the limbic system which needs specifically targeted treatment. You can get accused of being on illegal drugs. You react to the environmental stigmas when you try to explain the changes in your brain, you alienate and isolate yourself, you begin to become more avoidant, you sit and feel like no one understands. You get constantly criticised for having an illness but your true personality is rejected. We all have to make a contribution to society and it’s not mental health sufferers fault they have a mental health condition but to allow people with mental health conditions to get into work and work effectively treatment is essential or companies waste money on statuory sick pay. I think the government needs to introduce a mental health crisis payment which doesn’t affect businesses and companies but allows the sufferer to get the help that they need and allows them to be automatically signed a mental health key worker who works with them in their own home and with their families. So it’s combining sociology with mental health to be able to deliver change to society, to be able to allow the sufferer to demonstrate their capabilities for work and to be able to be a fully functioning member of society. We want to end austerity. We want to pay less taxes to the benefits system so we need to work together to allow people to recover, allow people to access mindfulness groups on the NHS and choose their own wellbeing plan, to choose the treatments they believe would suit them unless they fully lack capacity in which case a mental health professional would need to make that decision for them.

  1. 👏👏👏 Yes! I completely agree. Thank you so much for putting it out there. We must not feel ashame and stand together as a community to stand protect people with disabilities. Whether the disability is visible or not.
