One

of the hurtful things around mental illness is the language.

Words like ‘mad’.

Criticism like: ‘You are not really trying.’

‘If you wanted to get better, then you would.’

‘Do you want to go out and in of Hospital for ever?’

‘No-one will want to be your friend if you carry on like that.’

‘If you wore make-up you would feel better.’

‘The Doctor came in especially to see you.  Don’t make him feel he is wasting his time.’
