WE ARE DEDICATED TO ENDING THE STIGMA OF MENTAL ILLNESS
As a society, we speak openly about topics that were once unspeakable, but with mental illness, society has remained mostly silent, marginalizing people who need understanding and inclusion. What mental illness needs is more sunlight, less isolation and more truthful conversations about disorders that affect not only the individual, but their families and society as a whole. “Broken places are where the light enters.” -aCummings

“Depression Is As Real As a Rainstorm.” Do you know someone who has been diagnosed with depression? Sometimes not even that person knows how to describe what they’re feeling. But there is always hope. They can get better, because with depression, there is always a chance of sunshine, even if we don’t know when. Stephen Fry, the actor, says, “if the weather’s bad, one day it will get better. This card will let someone know, whatever the weather, that you are there for them!
“I PROMISE NEVER TO REFER TO YOUR POST TRAUMATIC STRESS DISORDER AS FINDING YOUR NEW NORMAL.” Just know that right now the only person who gets to decide what is normal, is the person struggling with PTSD. So this card will let them know that you are thinking about them.
First let me say for the record that I love dogs, just ask my service dog, General, when he’s taking up half of the bed. And I absolutely believe that people facing mental health issues can benefit from medication if needed. But let’s face it, it’s not helpful to be compared to a dog when you’re struggling with Bipolar Disorder. If someone close to you is experiencing this issue, they will appreciate this card!
This Body Dysmorphic Disorder Card should be sent to the human in your life if, 1) They need help seeing the awesome person they are inside, outside and from all sides, 2) They need a different perspective, and 3) They really need to know someone cares!
