Have you ever struggled with a mental illness? Has anybody said something that really made you feel worse? It’s a hard topic to talk about for some people. Some people don’t really believe that mental illness is even a ‘thing’ or it might just make them so uncomfortable. When I was listening to the podcast The Hilarious World of Depression with John Moe, I heard about this great website called Make It Okay.
You can do a lot of great things on this website like:
- Learn about what a mental illness is.
- Learn about what to say to somebody who is struggling.
- Learn about the stigma.
- Hear about other people’s stories.
- Take the pledge!
- Learn about more resources.
If you struggle with a mental illness, or know somebody that does, I hope you checkout the webpage. I’ll be back on Monday with part two of Gabriel’s story. Gabriel is my angel baby that was my first born, but born still. If you want to read the beginning of Gabriel’s story, see #18 of All the Things. Until then, take the pledge. Let’s end the stigma.

Question of the day. Do you suffer from mental illness? Does somebody close to you struggle?
