“Having strategies for coping with mental illness is extremely important. It is hard to enjoy your life if you are constantly sick with mental illness. However, believing in yourself, having hope that things will continue to get better, and looking forward to your future are also vital in overcoming mental illness. Our hopes and dreams are not delusions. Our hopes and dreams are what makes us human.”
