Reality check…

http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/health-39145781
I’ve provided a link to a story on the BBC News website that chronicles a young lady’s battle with mental illness. She adds the very important caveat that you can see mental illness, as evidenced by her photographs.

So, when someone has a mental illness, you can see the signs of neglect, of malnutrition, of worry, of anxiety. The list is endless. Any mental illness is an illness of the mind that will affect the physical functions too. People aren’t mad, they are broken down and will take a long time to repair, in some cases. 

It really is an excellent article.
