Mental Health & Loneliness. Mental health issues are severe, enduring, and in most cases lifelong is not an overstatement. Comparing Psychosis to other terminal physical illness that attract sympathy, love, empathy, and acceptance from the populace is not an over-exaggeration.
However a diagnosis of mental health issues make you loose friends, acquaintances, relatives, work colleagues, and social status because of the stigma associated with mental health diagnosis, either Neurosis or Psychosis. Most people are prohibited from even seeing there own children, despite the fact a holistic and comprehensive assessment found them to be no risk to anyone.
If you are reading this post. I will kindly employ you, to befriend at least one person, with a diagnosis of mental health issues. Make phone calls, establish relationships, let them know they are being loved. The media can help too, by positively reporting on mental health. The worst thing to happen to any human being is Isolation, ostracisation, avoidance, and loss of social status due to mental health issues.
