What do you want people to know about mental illness?

What I want people to know about my mental illness is that it’s something that I live with and am managing every day. I think sometimes there can be a misconception around mental illness where you get sick and then you get better and that’s the end of it. Which can be true in some cases but in the case of living with complex mental illness it can be more chronic than that. So I am actively fighting to stay well and stay healthy everyday even when it doesn’t look like it.
