Mental illness is still not as socially acceptable as the other illnesses, simply because people chose only to believe what they can see and assume that the person who claims to be mentally ill is simply overexaggerating since they look physically healthy. So naturally, people are afraid to open up because they're afraid of getting judged by others. Sharing stories about mental illness is really important because it helps people understand mental health since each story is unique.
AskReddit is a section in Reddit that allows users to ask sensitive questions about various topics, this time a user asked the community to share the ‘most terrifying thing they’ve seen in real life’, and one reply by a user named Nahimgoodu really stood out after he shared his experience. It initially started out as a ‘creepy’ theme, but it turned out to contain some very important lessons about mental health issues and their horrible effects on people.
