I wish there were commercials like this everywhere! If there were commercials like this in the U.S., I think people wouldn’t have a problem talking about it. Can you imagine having a mental illness and you can go out with your friends and discuss it openly, freely. The worst part about the stigma is that I have to pretend to be someone when I’m not. I have to pretend to be happy and fun, when all I want to do it cry and hide. This is the beginning of a movement, to let people know its okay to have this or that. It’s okay. Pass this along! Thanks Depressed Pessimist.

I posted this video on my blog as well! So glad to see that someone shares the same view as I do about this. Would LOVE LOVE to see this ad in the United States. I strongly believe the more we’re surrounded by something, the more we turn into it. So stop all this negativity and cultivate more meaning.
Anywho. Nice to meet your blog.
PS feel free to come on by and say hi!
Yes! we do need more ads like this one in the US, it would help so much!!
Nice to meet you and good luck!

It’ll take a while, but if we all talk candidly and without drama about the way things are with us, it will creep slowlyslowly through the consciousness of those who aren’t aware of the mental and emotional health (or lack of it) all around them.

This is a great advertisement that helps reduce the stigma of having a mental illness. It would be great to see a campaign like this go to air in Australia.
Great advertisement. It is initiatives like this that can help reduce the stigma of having a mental illness. It would be great to see something like this go to air in Australia.

This is a pretty good PSA for mental health in the workplace. I’m very worried about my health at work and how I will be perceived, and I think that by having commercials like this around to dispel the mysticism of mental health, things can only get better. As long as they are done with respect and in good taste, things will get better

God I love this advertisement.
Awesome. I was recently hospitalized and people keep asking how i feel. They don’t know for sure why I was hospitalized but THEY KNOW. I just act like nothing happened. Good!
Send this to them. Its funny because they know that’s how they are feeling. After sending it, bring it up to them because now the door is open. OR, not because it’s still probably too much to bear, for them and you. Either way, help them understand.
