Mental illness is rough on relationships of any kind, especially on couples. “The stress level often stretches into a crisis mode, in which managing the illness becomes, for all intents and purposes, the sole function of the relationship.”
“The mental illness has a way of directing the functionality and dynamic of the relationship, rather than the individuals involved. Nevertheless we have to remember that the people involved in the relationship have the ultimate control.
Join me, MSKeepItMoving and my special cohost, Michael “QuietStorm” Walton as we discuss the strain Mental Illness can put on your relationships. Get some tips on how you can maintain a healthy relationship rather than being consumed and controlled by Mental Illness.

How do you become a mental health advocate? How do you break down stigma surrounding mental illness? How do you start to heal, love, and accept yourself with a mental illness?
SHARE YOUR STORY!
Mental illness makes us feel SO alone sometimes. What you don't know is that hundreds of thousands of people are feeling the same way that you do with some of the same symptoms! There is so much healing and power in connecting with individuals who have experienced mental illness. You don't ever have to be or feel alone with your experience.
Also, you don't have to have a mental illness to be an advocate! Do you support better care for mental health? Do you have empathy and compassion for the topic of mental health? Speak up and let people know you support others in their mental illness challenges and you will be an advocate as well!
Ro Vitale and Chrissie Hodges, both advocates for mental health share their experiences of how powerful sharing their personal stories changed their lives and others.
Thank you for the support and courage to share your own journey!
