When I tell some people l treat my mental illness as I would my diabetes, the look I get and the comments I get make me realise we have so much more work to do! mental illness is from the mind, which is of the brain. which is of the body!
“Definition of mind in English:
The element of a person that enables them to be aware of the world and their experiences, to think, and to feel; the faculty of consciousness and thought”
But even with this definition in our language we still have those who think that the “mind” is either not real or impenetrable, leaving it to be an “imagined” illness.
