- Teenagers aren’t the only ones who self injure.
- People who have fought in wars and rape victims aren’t the only people who have PTSD.
- Girls aren’t the only ones that develop eating disorders.
- Adults can have ADHD.
Stop assuming these disorders only affect one “type” of person. Mental illness does not discriminate! Age, gender, race, economic status… anyone can be born with/develop a mental illness regardless.
