Mental illnesses are brain based medical illnesses which affect the way we feel, think and behave, but most times we find that people excuse their general disinterest in the topic of mental illnesses by calling it an invisible illness. This is a thread. #KeeptalkingMH #endstigma
A key part of the definition above highlights that these illnesses also affect the way we behave, hence proving that indeed it does present with physical components, #KeeptalkingMH #IamMentallyAware #EndStigma
and that most times when we push the narrative of invisibility it’s either because we don’t want to see these physical symptoms are we aren’t knowledgeably equipped to identify them. So, Here’s some help: #KeeptalkingMH #IamMentallyAware #EndStigma
Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD) #keeptalkingMH #endstigma #Iammentallyaware
Mental illnesses are as visible as our interest in them, let's change up the narrative, learn more about them and how to identify them in ourselves and in others. PLS RT #KeepTalkingMH #Iammentallyaware #endstigma

If you need psychological help, and you ask for it, or post a tweet that suggests you need help, and we are tagged to it, we assure you, we will do everything to reach out to you regardless of your past or present. We aren't here to be your judges and we will hear you out.
Here's reason why we won't take any suicide tweet or call as a joke:

No suicide attempt or cry for help should be dismissed or treated lightly! /1
