Your brain is a physical thing, it's an organ, and it can get sick or hurt just like any other part of your body. Mental illnesses can have a physical impact on the brain that we can see thanks to scans. I don't even fully think that mental illnesses should not be considered a physical illness, because of this and the fact people think "mental" means fake.

Depression quote - It’s so difficult to describe depression to someone who’s never been there, because it’s not sadness.
"If you would just pay attention!.." I am. That has nothing to do with it at all. It's not a choice...
Mental illness quote - I know what it's like to be afraid of your own mind.
Drugs are not the answer either. The basics of health must be met first: nutrition, sunshine and fresh air, exercise, connectedness to a community, followed by reality testing, CBT type work and mindfulness. These things bring wellness and recovery.
I knew my little brother suffered from depression for years but I never thought it would take him to such depths that he would actually take his own life. I should have heard it in his voice I should have seen it in his eyes and I should have seen it in his poetry that he wrote to me. I will miss his smile and his cute button nose for the rest of my life #TheSunShinesBrighterBecauseHeWasHere ❤
