The following cartoons touch on the challenges of talking to people about Mental Health issues.
As you can see in the first cartoon, broaching the “sensitive” subject (with the direct approach) is not always the best approach. The 2nd cartoon gets to the “beef” of the matter, focusing on how sometimes we need to make sure people “understand” — AKA are educated about the actual illness! Leading me to the fact that any diagnosis is just a “label” and we shouldn’t have to clown around and let it identify us!
I hope one of these cartoons brings a smile to your day! Please feel free to express your thoughts and comments below, Thanks.
