Today, thanks to better early detection, there are 63% fewer deaths from heart disease than there were just a few decades ago. Thomas Insel, Director of the National Institute of Mental Health, wonders: Could we do the same for depression and schizophrenia? The first step in this new avenue of research, he says, is a crucial reframing: for us to stop thinking about “mental disorders” and start understanding them as “brain disorders.” (Filmed at TEDxCaltech.)

What are your Depression symptoms, and how do you handle them?
So the other day I came across a trailer presented by the organization To Write Love On Her Arms and was blown away that another film on addiction and mental illness will be released. For those of you who have Netflix, there is a movie titled, ‘Call Me Crazy’. It’s a five feature film, from a woman suffering schizophrenia to a woman experiencing Severe Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. It’s a wonderful film, and I highly recommend to anyone. It is surely a life changer. Makes you appreciate the struggles you don’t face. Best part of the film, Brittany Snow stars in it.
Now that I completely went off subject, To Write Love On Her Arms seems to be about a girl who is suffering from Bipolar Disorder, and as an addiction problem. That’s from what I’ve gathered in the trailer. So who will be seeing the film?

It’s challenging to see recovery when dealing with mental experiences, but let me tell you this:
Recovery is very much so possible, and it is seen in everyday life. Like I mentioned in earlier posts, waking up is recovery. Going to work or school is recovery. Changing little things in your life, that is recovery. Not every day is going to be a good day, and you may find others harder, but knowing that it is just a bad day, and changing the views you have on it, it’s recovery. Stay true to yourself and never forget who you are. You are irreplaceable, one of a kind.
In this post, you will visit two people, Matti and Elyn. Both parties have schizophrenia, and are both in recovery. Let’s view their stories as success stories.
