This pin provides information for schizophrenia awareness. Read over the statistics, then visit the website. Read the information provided in the 'What is mental health?' tab, then listen to the video about young people with mental illnesses on the home page. I hope it provides you with a better understand of mental health, and its prevalence in youth. You are not alone!
If people understood what these individuals go through they would maybe be a bit more compassionate towards them. They are not psycho killers in fact quite often they are more of a danger to themselves. I've had 3 sufferers in my life one unfortunately passed away earlier this year. I advocated a lot for another who was very vulnerable. These are human beings with problems through no fault of their own, they are marginalised and have high premature mortality rate. cut them a little slack?
