If your mental health deteriorates so does your physical health. This is a known fact, and without your health, you can no longer live a productive life. Why is this vital knowledge so taboo to talk about? We have a preconceived notion that “mental illness” is weakness, that these people cannot adapt, damaged, lazy etc. This is simply not true for everyone, many people with mental health issues are famous or successful too. Mental Health affects all of us, so it should be in the front and center of our societies.
