A mental illness can affect many aspects of one’s life, especially relationships. Looking after our loved ones with psychological issues, while trying to cope with our own problems, can be extremely stressful.
The stigma that society puts on mental disorders can make people feel burdened for their loved ones, which makes it harsh to disclose their feelings. The same happens with people who are in a relationship with someone who is suffering from a psychological issue, as it can be difficult for them to seek help because they are afraid of being misunderstood or judged.
This webinar contains information on how mental illnesses affect our relationships and how to protect these relationships while managing the mental illness from both ourselves and our loved ones.
