Something to think about today?🤔
BOTH- need help
BOTH - need support -
BOTH - need treatment -
BOTH- hurt -
BORH - are painful -
BOTH- can be life changing -
BOTH - can be debilitating
BOTH - can cause no sleep
BOTH - can leave you worthless ... -
BOTH- can leave you helpless....
But BOTH have one very big difference ... when you see someone with let’s say...broken ankle... your attitude soon changes to caring, supportive ... the good old “are you ok” it’s pretty “normal” to see a broke ankle...mental health doesn’t carry a cast, a sign ... a plaster over it... BUT BOTH ARE BROKEN... believe it or not it’s pretty common to walk around with a broken leg or body part .. 1 in 4 people will experience mental health inside the uk each year... that’s approx 16.5 MILLION people ... 1-800 in average break or fracture their ankle each year...
But it’s more common, more NORMAL.. to see the ankle in the cast & someone propped up on crutches right?... off course it is.. -
Something to think about is mental health, suffering, pain, depression, manic & many don’t always show signs & symptoms ... .
However you think you have broken your ankle where do you go? If at any time you are having any thoughts, suicidal, down, dark , worthless .. speak up, you answered that if you broken your ankle you would go to the hospital right? Let’s treat the mind in the same way... did you know you can go to A&E if you have any suicidal thoughts? Just like that ankle of yours ❤️
As everything I post it’s from experience of living with mental health & have lived it... experience is what we will learn from the most with mental health... talk, share...what ever it takes
