Mental illness refers to a wide range of mental health conditions — disorders that affect your mood, thinking and behavior. It’s one of the most misunderstood illnesses in todays society with a lot of stigma attached to it and this has brought about many heartaches and misinformation.
In this episode, Mathura and Hong Jin shares with us the struggles and challenges living with this illness as well as the victories they have experienced. The journey may sometimes feel like it’s a lonely one but it doesn’t have to be and we all can play a part to help and care for those who have those challenges.
