Good mental health is more than the absence of a mental health problem. Mental health issues affect around 2/3 of the population, with many suffering in silence.

Loving somebody with a mental illness can often be difficult. You should keep in mind that your partner is facing something that you might not have experienced before, and, as a matter of fact, their coping mechanisms may be completely different to what you would do.

As it’s Mental Health Awareness Week, here are some ways which could help you regarding how to treat your partner who’s suffering from a mental illness.

Be understanding


It’s easier said than done – and, apparently, you might not be able to understand what your partner is dealing with totally. However, you shouldn't get angry with them when they are upset.

Also, don’t belittle them if they are feeling nervous about something. Don’t call them lazy, when the fatigue from depression is getting too much. Try to think more before you speak.

Attend counseling sessions with your partner


While sessions are usually one-on-one, your loved one can request you come along. This could be very helpful since it means there’s someone else in the room to mediate your conversation.

Don't pressure them


Sometimes your partner won't feel ok to do the things you want to do. They might desire to stay at home for days when you want to get out. Try to show some patience by staying at home with them, show them that they matter to you.

Ask for help


You cannot solve all issues by yourself. It's significant that you offer your partner some privacy. If they feel like talking to you, then be there to listen. Nevertheless, you need to remember that sometimes medical treatment cannot be avoided. So don't be afraid to ask for help when needed.


The following video by PewDiePie can be really helpful and motivating:

The Mental Health Foundation has hosted Mental Health Awareness Week in the second week of May since 2000. Some years ago, these weeks used to focus on how mindfulness, anxiety, sleep deprivation, and relationships can affect our mental well-being. In 2017 the theme will be ‘from surviving to thriving.'

A lot of people see daily life as a battle. Our family, our job, our bills and our social life can sometimes be a burden to us.

The number of people who are encountering high levels of mental illnesses is constantly increasing. That's why this Mental Health Awareness Week's goal is to set out the real scale and cost of fighting to survive.

  4. I used to suffer from HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS for about 3 years. No medications or treatments ever really did anything for me (i tried them all no one work. but I was actually able to completely cure HERPES naturally after countless hours of online research. What worked for me is as follows: I saw Dr ILLUOBE Information online that he normally cure and treat disease and infirmities with his Herbal Medicine, I never really believed the people who where recommending him thou i saw on blog about 6 people where also testifying on how they were cured by Dr ILLUOBE, and still Ellen recommend Dr ILLUOBE who uses herbal medication to cure HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS and gave me his email, so i mail him He told me all the things I need to do and also give me instructions to take, which I followed properly.Before I knew what is happening after two weeks the HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS that was in my body got vanished. so if you are also heart broken and also need a help, you can also email him: [email protected] if you are infected with any disease like HIV,AIDS, CANCER,HERPES SIMPLEX VIRUS, or any other disease you can also be happy like me by contacting.....

  5. My mother was diagnosed with ALS in May 2014. Her doctor put her on riluzole, letting her know there was no cure but the medication might provide her a few more months of delayed symptoms. ALS progresses at different rates and affects different body parts first. My mother, being 73 at the time, fell into a category of what they call "fast progression" (older female). Her arms weakened first, then her hands, her mouth, and throat, and finally her lungs. Throughout her two-and-a-half-year ordeal, she was able to walk with assistance nothing was really working to help her condition.I took her off the riluzole (with the doctor’s knowledge) and started her on amyotrophic lateral sclerosis herbal formula i ordered from Health Herbal Clinic, her symptoms totally declined over a 5 weeks use of the ALS disease natural herbal formula. She's now almost 76 and doing very well, the disease is totally reversed!! Visit there website www. healthherbalclinic. net
