Mental Illness : When are we going to STOP Equating a "Broken Brain" to a "Weak Minded Person"
Description: You break a leg and everyone says "you poor thing get some rest and take it easy for awhile"
You get clinical depression and the world around you says "snap out of it and be happy you weak
When are we going to realize the brain is an organ just like the heart and lungs. And much like heart disease or lung cancer the brain gets "sick" as well i.e. low dopamine levels, neurons misfiring, tumors etc...etc...
So let's quit the bullshit of putting this unwanted stigma on mental illness.It's a bio-chemical and bio-physical disease. So let's treat it as such !!
Just my two cent rant
