oh shit what have we done go back in your hole
things that won’t cure mental illness
- threatening the person
- guilt tripping the person
- making the person feel like it’s their fault
- ignoring the person
- calling their behaviors “weird”, “gross”, “annoying”, “stupid”
because you’re actually making the problem 400 times worse, thanks

Re-make of this post.
End mental health stigma.
In this gut-wrenching talk, Sergeant Andrew Chambers shares the haunting story of his time in Iraq and the tough transition home that landed him in jail. It’s a powerful testimony to the struggle our soldiers face when they come home, and the tragic ways that they can be denied the help they need.
For anyone looking to support a veteran, we encourage you to heed Chambers’s advice: "Find a veteran and listen to his story. A lot of us just need somebody to talk to."
