What Does it Feel Like to Have a Mental Illness?

May 08, 2019

Youth in foster care are disproportionately more likely to experience mental health issues than youth in the general population. We know about the symptoms of mental illness - but what does it really feel like to have one?

Mental Health America has created #mentalhealthfeelslike to increase awareness and give people a platform to share their experience with mental illness.  Real people use their own words to describe everything from depression to body dysmorphia. It's powerful and moving, and anyone with a social media account can join.
