Public learning more about mental health - just not about sz

Here in the uk there is a big drive to get people more aware of mental health. Thing is it all seems to be about depression and anxiety. I have not once heard about psychosis - except for the occasional post-partum psychosis.

Seems like even in the discussion of mental illness we sz/a are second class citizens.


I’ve noticed that in the social media that promotes mental health, it’s all about depression and anxiety, I guess it’s what people suffer the most.


You couldn’t have said it better. My local area launched this very good and beneficial campaign on ending stigma. It is really well done. However, there is not a whole lot on sz/a disorders, but it is there if you dig.

I think the people in this campaign are extremely brave.
