According to the World Health Organization, “1 in 4 people will be affected by some kind of mental or neurological disorder at some point in their lives. Around 450 million people currently suffer from such conditions, placing mental disorders among the leading causes of ill-health and disability worldwide.”
And yet, despite all the information available, there are still many people who feel that a mental health disorder is something one can simply decide NOT to have; that it can be wished away or turned “off.”
So, what if people with physical illnesses and injuries were the given the same advice given to those suffering from mental and behavioral illnesses? Can’t picture it? Well, artist, Robot Hugs, can, and has created a helpful cartoon to show just how that would look.
