We have been looking at common myths that need to be busted. Watch a few of our videos here!
Another myth is that if a person has a mental illness it is a permanent situation. This is not true — if a person seeks the right support and goes through the process, recovery from the mental illness is possible.

This is not true either. Recovery is dependent on developing strategies to preserve willpower by controlling the environment.
Remember that you are #NotAlone — you can reach out for help to mental health professionals and de-addiction specialists.
