Student Testimonials: William’s Personal Mental Health Experiences
Duration: 1 minute, 24 seconds
Well I think that I definitely am affected by mental health, much in the same way that my physical health affects me, and I think everyone’s affected by both of those things. And maybe sometimes I put more emphasis on how I’m feeling physically than how I’m feeling mentally, which I think is definitely something that I should think about more often.
In terms of being affected by a mental health issue, or specifically one that is defined as a mental health issue or disorder, whatever the language is that’s around it, I think that it’s different when you maybe are feeling down because you’re stressed, or if you’ve seen a doctor or a health professional and you have a diagnosis of something.
That’s definitely something that is different, and that’s one thing that makes mental health really difficult, is that differentiation between knowing what’s something that maybe you should seek treatment for, or at least talk to a professional about, or something where it might be good just to talk to a friend, or take some time for yourself, or talk to your family or whatever makes you feel good.
