Right now, one in ten children have a mental health condition. Despite this, we still ...

  1. this honesty makes me very angry, even the younger generation is ignorant af. WHY isn't this taught in our schools?

  2. Many mental health people are very creative and successfull. especially with ADHD or OCD. they are function mental health.

    many people have mental health without them even knowing it.

  3. This is both sad and beautiful — there is pain but hope.

  4. It brought to me into tears😢
    Thank you for making this video and sharing.

  5. Thumbnail and first few seconds in video: 1/8 adults
    Description: 1/7 adults
    My academic credibility senses are tingling…

  6. I'm glad he at least demonstrates honestly how the world views us. This encourages me (my decisions my own and cannot be influenced by a simple video) to never seek help for my mental health and never reveal that I have a mental health condition. The medications do not even work on my specific mental health predicament. My family treated me with complete misunderstanding and disrespect and view me as a weak burden who just sucks up money. Even if they did understand I don't believe they can help me anyways. I'd rather just smile and nod. If I become broke I'll just…..well, I am allowed to tell you that part. Just smile, right? Smiling makes everything better. CX

  7. 1:20 thats for narcissist mental illness can go beyind that

  8. Honestly shook that i was nevwe thought not to say wtv they said even tho they were just really honest or blunt tactless 😂

  9. I don't like it when videos try to manipulate you and play sad music, if it's sad let me be sad, don't try to tell me how to feel.

  10. The people who have never been through it ….won’t understand

  11. “friends can disappear and i will never hear from them again”

    this hit me the hardest lmao especially when those that leave are those that you trust the most

  12. So fake tho. But gd effort.

  13. I suffer in silence as a person with mental illness and I feel for my forgotten people dealing alone with anxiety disorder and depression

  14. Singapore highest depression cases

  15. Wtf?? Who would say "if you break up with me i'll cut myself or kill myself"? I think some of these people are crazier than us ✌😎❤

  16. “I’ve learned that family doesn’t always know how to support you, no matter how much you need them”

    Ain’t that the truth, relatable as fluff ;-;

  17. Hello from Vancouver!
    Honestly, this segment of Singaporeans on their views of mental health isn’t that different from what I would say if I was interviewed. I hate to say this.

  18. Having in a relationship with a person with mental health issue for a year made me realize that I have to let go some of my empathy. I am not saying people with mental health are inferior, in contrary, I have respect to them. But it is part of my right to avoid negativity, avoid someone that might ruin my day, and to find myself someone with the same value, same emotional stability etc. It is not my responsibility to compromise the needs of people with mental health to an extent that most of my right are lost. Our primary role is ourselves rather than care givers, so before helping others, take care of yourself.

  19. I have depression and people call me "Crazy" or "A mistake" and they say "we don't need people like you in this world." This just strengthens my desire to commit suicide. But I hold back because I have a sibling that loves me with all her heart. I have a mother who cares for me even if she herself is going through something. But most of all, I realize how beautiful life is and how I shouldn't waste it. Even though my father is manipulative and cheated on my mother, I should know that he is just a speck of dirt in our ocean and we should not let people like him get to us. And it also sucks that I can't stop binge eating it makes me feel better for a few seconds then I have to eat more and more and MORE until I can't eat anymore or I throw up. I've been putting on a bunch of weight since I started having depression I went from 81 pounds to 92 in just two weeks last summer! Now I'm 110 (As far as I'm aware I might have put on more since last time I checked.) What I'm trying to say is mental illnesses can be hard for us but we can get through them! It might take some time, therapy, and maybe even medication but in the end remember we all matter even if it's hard to see.

  20. The stereotype doesn't bother me. People just need to know about it. So I'm glad the people were being more open in the end of the video. I almost cried. I myself suffer from anxiety, although not diagnosed. Like they said, I have an illness, but it's not my identity.

  21. I would love to do a mental health awareness video…as a mental health tech i would love to raise awareness with youtube. Thank you.

  22. so is nobody gonna talk about that rude ass old uncle

  23. People with mental illness doesn't mean they are crazy, we all are human beings. #makelove

  24. As someone who struggles with severe depression anxiety and adhd hearing the stigma really upsets me

  25. Thank you for this.. This is a big help for my research

  26. when you are successful, people will crowd around you. but when you are a failure, everyone will leave. mental health advocates is just a facade. in this world, only the strongest will survive. it has always been that way since the dawn of time. either you run away from your problems or you fight it . there will always be fear in life. People will always get addicted to alcohol, pornography and drugs as a form of escapism. this is the problem why. all these anti-depressants drugs are part of the problem too. social media is also the reason why people are getting depressed. we always like to compare our lifestyles, who is better or not. thats the problem.
