"Always trust the injustices, because they are here to stay"

Why?

I feel like there is this huge stigma associated with being mentally ill. 1 in 4 adults in the past year have had or have a sort of mental illness. Why do people shy away from these statistics? Is this because of the perceived notion that if you are diagnosed with a mental illness you are labeled as crazy? Mental illness is the number one killer for college age students so why is it so largely ignored. The university I attend has over 300 clubs, but not one dedicated to the support and advocacy of those who have a mental illness. Can people not come to terms with the word suicide? Is it inconvenient to go out of your way to think of this as an actual problem? People die ever year due to mental illness. People die ever year when there are people who can help. Ignoring a problem won’t make it go away. As Lily Allen once said “Always trust the injustice, because it is here to say.” With that I say Adieu. Food for thought.
