Mental Illness Quotes and Hashtags

Here is a list of over 15 mental health quotes that I found on twitter. ~ Karen B.

@PinksterC_87: One of the greatest gifts you can bestow upon another, if someone is in need, lend them a helping hand, but don’t wait for a thank you as true kindness lies within the act of giving without the expectation of something in return. #MentalHealth #ItOkNotToBeOk

@JPBrown5:  I’m not made of stone. So why do I feel the need to act like it? I think it’s because we value dominance over heart, strength over vulnerability.  Enough, I say. #Mentalhealth is a flower that pushes up out of the cracks.

@HaydenFinchPhD : One of the best ways to train your body to sleep well is to go to bed & get up at the same time every day, even on weekends. This trains your biological clock to make you sleepy at the right time. #MasterYourMH

@RealAnxietyMan: Depression can be extreme. Some of us have to dig deep to make it through each passing hour. If this is you – keep going. If all you can do is make it through the next hour – keep doing that.  You will find peace. There is an answer.

@Jenniger_Down04 : If someone trust you enough to tell you personal things such as their struggle with depression or what anxiety feel like or just how they feel in general, don’t be a shitty person and brush it off by belittling it just because you’ve never experienced it. #MentalHealthMatters

@_NatashaDevon : Dear brands/businesses. If you launch campaigns claiming to support people’s #mentalhealth, that ethos MUST extend to your employees & contractors. Heard too many stories of public face not matching private actions. I see you and I’ll use my platform to help anyone treated badly

@JenniferGuttman : You may not even be aware that you’re running your everyday experiences through a negative filter. The only way to stop this cycle is to force awareness. One way to do this is to keep a log of your thoughts. #GuttmanPsychology

@LotusFl63450259 : Do you ever get that feeling mentally when you just aren’t sure how you feel but you’re not quite feeling right? Like you aren’t low or particularly anxious, you’re a bit tired but not compared to your usual fatigue maybe, but something just isn’t quite right?

@MEHEP4U : When people tell me they’ve a #bipolar disorder or #depression, they whisper it in my ear. I wish there would be a day soon when people can say those things out loud, like how they talk about diabetes or high blood pressure. #mentalhealth #mentalillness #mhstigmafighter ~ Kay Warren

@nrmentalhealth : In our materialistic world, the poverty of being unwanted, unloved & uncared for is the greatest poverty. We must start in our own homes to remedy this kind of poverty Research shows loving relationships are essential to #brain growth in the early years – important for #mentalhealth

@NAMMass: Suicide is 10th-leading cause of death overall & 2nd-leading cause of death ages 10-34 yrs. Let’s Talk About It!  Talking about suicide, will not encourage someone to try it. It is more likely than giving someone the opportunity to talk openly about their feelings, will in itself reduce the risk of suicide. A.C.T:  Acknowledge: Take it seriously, and listen; Care: Take the initiative, and show and/or voice your concern; Treatment: Get professional help immediately.

@josh_fftw: If you think that someone is not okay, don’t just ask them twice. Change your tact. Share with them some of your own struggles, be vulnerable. Let’s stop the lip service. If you can’t talk about your own struggles, how do you expect someone to open up to you.   #vulnerability

@EleanorSegal: Not everyone is going to understand your #mentalillness. Especially if they don’t have a loved one with it. They can read books, blogs, articles and ask us how they can support us best. It is by asking the person with it how you can help, that understanding is created. Reach out. #reachout

@Fibutton: So, after much deliberation, my boss told me today that as a Mental Health professional in a school I am deemed as non essential staff and has halved my hours and salary due to budget cuts in education. This is not an unusual measure, this is what’s happening folks
