Link – Nurse Mandy Stevens LinkedIn Post About Being a Mental Health Patient
There is some absolute truth in this statement-
““Mental illness will affect 1 in 4 of us during our lifetime and I guess now it’s my turn,” Stevens, who lives in the U.K., shared in a post on LinkedIn. “As I have worked in mental health services for 29 years, one would think I would be immune to mental illness… But there is no immunity; mental illness can come out of nowhere and affect anyone at any time.””
There isn’t something unique about people who are dealing with a mental health issue. They do not have some character flaw or weakness that brought it on, they do not lie in a part of the world, or place in society that made it more likely. They are just human.
