May is Mental Health Month and this year’s theme focuses on Life with a Mental Illness.
Whether you have a mental illness or you know someone who does, all are invited to share what a mental illness feels like through photos, words, video, etc. with the hashtag #mentalillnessfeelslike.
According to Mental Health America, “sharing is the key to breaking down negative attitudes and misperceptions surrounding mental illnesses, and to show others that they are not alone in their feelings and their symptoms.”
To help erase the stigma surrounding mental health and mental illness, here are some of the best visual representations and quotes about mental health we found. Share yours in the comment section below!
Remember, use the hashtag #mentalillnessfeelslike on social media during May. Everything will be collected at http://www.mentalhealthamerica.net/feelslike.
