When you start talking about your experience with mental illness and a loved one, people begin to share their story, too. When people open up, it stops that “I must be the only one” way of thinking. I’ve talked to so many people that have said, “I have a sibling, relative, friend who suffers from depression and mental illness, too.” Once you start talking about it and sharing, you see that so many people are suffering along with you, in some capacity. Stop the stigma by starting the conversation. No shame. You are not the only one on this roller coaster.
