Unfortunately, those that suffer from mental health conditions are regularly discriminated and judged. This is due to the nature of some of the symptoms of certain illnesses, the perpetration of mental illnesses in media and social stigma. Mental illness is just as serious as other illnesses and should be taken just as seriously. Suicide and self-harm is a major effect of mental illnesses and takes the lives of many people all over the world every year. There are many charities and places to look up information, most can be found online by just typing into Google. These usually have statistics, advice, symptoms,  and all the legal and employment guidance you need.
