What NOT to say to someone with struggling with a mental disorder…

Want to know what NOT to say to someone struggling with depression, anxiety, or other mental disorder? This brave young lady’s recent Facebook post may help:

She is absolutely correct in her stats: More than a third (estimates range from 28-44%) of all people will suffer from mental health issues at some point in their lifetime (1). If you are blessed to not have had to struggle with mental health issues, please do your best to be understanding, supportive, or at the very least be non-judgmental of the many many people around you who may be silently suffering from depression, anxiety, or other mental health issues.
