Mental Illness is Real, Stop Pretending !

Mental Illness in the Web Industry – A List Apart

Mental disorders are among the leading causes of non-fatal disease burden in India. One in seven Indians were affected by mental disorders of varying severity in 2017. The proportional contribution of mental disorders to the total disease burden in India has almost doubled since 1990. Substantial variations exist between states in the burden from different mental disorders and in their trends over time.

However, there are a lot of people who claim to be ill while they are really just sad, are having a bad time, want attention or are just trolling. That kind of behavior is far from being okay. People without real issues are blocking ressources (therapists or others) that other people need.

I really think that there are cases where we‘d be better off just telling someone to just grow up and start solving minor issues alone. People don‘t need and shouldn’t get help for every unplanned event in their lifetime. Help should be for those in need, so we don‘t lose them.
