“While everyone – all colors – everyone is affected by stigma – no one wants to say ‘I’m not in control of my mind.’ No one wants to say, ‘The person I love is not in control of [their] mind.’ But people of color really don’t want to say it because we already feel stigmatized by virtue of skin color or eye shape or accent and we don’t want any more reasons for anyone to say, ‘You’re not good enough.'” -Bebe Moore Campbell
If you have never been diagnosed with a mental illness, the only way to know if you have one is to see a mental healthcare professional. If your symptoms are severe, you should dial 911 or visit the closest emergency room.
