Let’s Stop Laughing at Mental Illness

It’s the tail end of Mental Health Awareness Month, so instead of a quote and prompt, I’m reblogging this. Mental Health is an important issue that deserves attention. Let’s take it seriously.

Lately I’ve been seeing a lot of these “you’re in a mental hospital…” chain statuses going around on facebook. The content is as follows:

You’re in a mental hospital.  Use the first 7 people on your text list in order… No cheating!

  • Your roommate:
  • Person licking windows:
  • Person helping you escape:
  • The doctor:
  • Person running around naked:
  • Person yelling nonsense:
  • Person you went crazy with:

Let’s see if yours is as true and funny as mine!

I get it; it’s just for a laugh. It’s supposed to be “true and funny.” But the reality isn’t funny at all, nor is it likely to be true about the people whose names someone plugs in.
