It certainly is nice being able to relate with someone else about your own mental health issues, especially when they are in your family. But my own family has a hard time viewing the issues of mental health as a serious matter. Often the approach that is taken when I appear sad or frustrated for seemingly no reason is being told to eat something and to sleep it off. If you do not have someone in your family that can relate to the issues you’re dealing with, it is important to expand your reach and seek out friends and other members of the community to share your experiences. Though you may not believe it, many people go through the similar experiences, and it can quiet alleviating to tell someone else about these struggles.
