A lot of people are suffering quietly and some are taking to social media to break taboos and get the conversation going.

From small tics to a complete inability to leave the house, the effects of mental illness are as various as the people who live with them. May is Mental Health Awareness month and talking about how mental illness affects us is a vital first step, not just in erasing stigma but raising awareness for those who don’t personally experience it.

These Twitter users are letting us in to what they deal with on a daily basis…

Sharing experiences is a great first step, but it doesn’t end there. How does mental illness affect you or someone you know? May isn’t over yet; use this awareness month to find out how you can be a better advocate for yourself and for your loved ones.
