Media vs Reality

I thought this video was interesting to see a side by side comparison of what the media portrays and what may be some people’s personal experience with that mental illness. It’s almost never accurate and just further’s the stigma of mental illness, but also causes fear for those suffering with a mental illness. Not being sure what’s going on in yourself is hard enough, let alone being afraid to seek help because of stigma.
