Challenging Stigmas & an Imperfect System

2 years ago

Post has been edited. Updated version coming soon.


If you are depressed or dealing with any other mental illness, please get help. Ask family, ask a friend, ask a co-worker, ask a neighbor. Call a hotline. It’s a good thing to ask for help. You are not a burden. There are resources if you don’t have insurance or lack the money for treatment.

Do not give up.

If a therapist or a medication doesn’t work, try a new one. Please don't give up on yourself. You are not broken or doing something wrong if Plan A doesn’t help you. Do not forget that. I am still here because of Plans B through H.


PostSecret has put together a helpful list of hotlines and websites for the U.S. and abroad. Bookmark the page, because you never know when you or someone you know might need it. ❤
