#EndTheStigma Speak Up Mental Illness
Mental illness is a topic that is not talked about enough, yet it is an issue that affects each and every one of us. One in every 4 to 5 youth meet the criteria for a mental disorder. This is how common it is and how many people it affects, yet there still exists a stigma in our society. A stigma that depression is a weakness or just about sadness, when it is an illness. A stigma that having anxiety or an eating disorder is a choice or something that can easily be changed or switched off.
