People need to become more aware of mental illnesses. By sweeping it under the rug and ignoring this prevalent issue, it just makes those who are inflicted feel like they need to hide something that isn't even their fault. Just like you don't "choose" to have diabetes or high blood pressure, those who are mentally ill don't choose. It can happen to anyone. Disease doesn't discriminate. Don't tell people that they can't have a mental illness if they don't have an awful life. It's important to talk about mental illnesses to inform the public about how a mental illness cant affect someone and help the people who are mentally sick to feel the support and love that they need to fight.
