Mental illness and some others views

some people would say there is no such thing as ‘‘mental illness’’

tomato tomatoes,I had someone trying to tell me that there was no such thing in the US it was just that we all haddifferent points of view

Heck I know a therapist who says there’s no such thing as mental illness only varying degrees of mental wellness.

For all I care they can call it Mary and say it comes from Mars but that doesn’t make it any less of a reality.

My current therapist acknowledges mental illness, but she downplays the severity of these illnesses - this kind of gets on my nerves, but maybe she is trying not to stir up fear or anxiety in me by doing this
