End the stigma, truth

I lie about being sick sometimes, because people understand if you have a cold, but not if you have depression.

  1. This is so true. Many people are comfortable talking if it’s about the cold or a sore throat. Mention mental illness and they frequently change the subject. Yes I would often say I had man flu rather than talk about the poor state of my mental health. We so need to change this. People need to feel able to talk openly.
