• Mental Illness can’t be overcome by “snapping out of it.” Asking someone to “think positive” is like asking someone with diabetes to change his or her blood sugar level by thinking about it. People with mood disorders can feel better with the right treatment.

  • Seeking treatment is a smart choice that takes strength. Mood disorders are not flaws or weaknesses. Seeking treatment means a person has the courage to look for a way to feel better.


  • Depression and bipolar disorder are just states of mind. A person just needs to “think positive” and they will go away.

  • Treatment is a cop-out for people who are too weak to cope with day-to-day life.
