It’s World Mental Health Day. So, as I was scrolling through FB I was sad to see this copy and paste post. It’s not “hilarious” to joke about the people you would know in “a mental hospital”. Listen, I know this wasn’t shared with the intention of causing someone who came across it pain…but it did. It hurt me, because, well, I was a person in ”a mental hospital”, many times in fact.
If you would like to know what it was like to be a patient in the mental health department, just ask me. I am an open book and believe that only by sharing our experiences will the stigma and myths of mental illness decrease; and maybe one day, vanish.
I’m not mad about this post. Sad…but not mad. It has given me an opportunity to educate – so thank you.
Hilarious 😂😂. You have to do it without cheating…It is so weird how it comes up with the names…this is so funny!!
I’m in a mental hospital.
Licks the glass:
Helps you escape:
Asleep in a corner:
Shouts at everyone:
Padded room occupant:
Eats the plants:
Talks to themselves:
Kicks the nurse:
Believes they are unicorns:
Sneaks in the alcohol:
Make a copy-paste and delete the names…
Then type @ then the 1st letter of each sentence (no spaces) to see the name of one of your friends! (if one is already used, take the next one!!) dont cheat either!!!

I agree…. Also there is a popular song on the radio referencing “psycho” which I don’t like either. I believe that we as individuals should tear down those stereotypes and try to educate and build each other up……Be it about Mental illnesses / psychiatric wards or it could apply to anything that you are unfamiliar with in life
