"One study from the U.S. National Comorbidity Survey found that 18 percent of employed respondents said they had symptoms of a mental health disorder in the previous month – they tend to remain hidden at work, in large part because the stigma still attached to them makes people hesitant to approach their employers and ask for accommodations they might need."

"If we keep allowing our perception of what mental illness looks like to dictate how we go about recognizing and treating it, we will continue to overlook those who don’t fit the mold. We cannot keep forgetting that there are people out there who, though they may not be able to check off every symptom on the list, are heavily and negatively affected by their mental illness. If we forget, we allow their struggle to continue unnoticed, and that is pretty scary." https://themighty.com/2016/05/high-functioning-depression-we-cant-overlook-the-overachievers/
"I could experience #peace even in the midst of my suffering if I could find a way to use my bruises and sores for the good of others." #recovery #selfcare #wellbeing #leadership #mentalhealth
