I can confirm that this is 100% accurate. If you have a physical illness, you will get no end of attention. If you have a mental illness, you are shunned and ignored.
A few days ago it was world mental health day. Around the world tens of thousands posted their stories and got likes and well dones. I guarantee the next day most people will have forgotten about it all.
Mental health doesn’t have days off. So why should we only be aware of it for one day a year?
Ask your friends how they are. Invite them out even though you know they won’t come. Let them know you care. Because even if they don’t say it or show it, they’ll appreciate it. You never know how easy it is to save someone’s life just by letting them know you care.
