If You Only Knew

If you only knew, but you never will…..unless you open your mind….

It does not have a face, a type, or a place…..

Mental illness turns outsiders blind…..

Please take time to think about and to believe that mental illness is affecting someone you know.  Refrain from judgement.  Just be there.  Be genuine and compassionate.  Reach out for help….we are here and we mean it.

Today in our group, we discussed the stigma that exists around those suffering with a mental illness.

Then we laughed and sang together….because it felt good, and we “get” each other.  No judgement.  Telling truths.  Feeling okay in the company of each other… 🙂
