The Rise of Romanticising Mental Illnesses & Why It Must Be Stopped

December 12, 2019


Because in these ups and downs through life You, you know that one day you’re going to feel better Sun never shines on that one year. The type of depression I speak of Doesn’t matter if it’s the black and white or if the sun is shining Nothing, nothing looks good, it’s all blackness. *Haunting music* You may not know is that I have suffered with anxiety, and panic attacks really, really badly I’m depressed Today I want to talk about my anxiety Some things that I also struggle with are ocd, panic attacks, ptsd, insomnia, paranoia, and irrational fears But I also have anxiety (Anxiety) Wazup? (Lady) Goddammit If you suffer from anxiety make sure to like this video, leave a comment down below saying “Oh my god! Love you!”, subscribe, and join the anxiety fam. *Indistinct screams of frustration* and now that that’s out of the way we can get into what today’s video is all about so the other day i was scrolling through instagram when i came across the thing that inspired me to make this video this is a post promoting her new merch and the second being a beige hoodie having the literal google definition of anxiety printed on the back of it yeah you really can’t make this stuff up through a lot of extensive digging i found a lot of positive comments on the post but the majority of people were not surprisingly not too thrilled with this with comments such as ‘u rly out here tryna profit off a mental illness’ ‘stop glamorizing anxiety’, ‘this illness has ruined my fucking life and you making a fucking profit off of it is sick’ i honestly couldn’t agree more for one she’s literally profitting off of people’s mental illnesses the way this is marketed it is obviously aimed towards consumers with anxiety and what i think corina doesnt understand is there is a distinct difference between marketing towards a certain demographic and providing a sense of relatability i already know what some people are thinking “but luke she said she was going to donate to some of the proceeds to the association anxiety and depression of america’ but she said was only going to donate 15% and while donating to charity is usually commendable the question whether or not she did this just to paint what she is doing in a positive light lets focus on the facts 15% are going towards a good cause where is the other 75% (sic) going?straight into corina’s ban account for her to spend on whatever she pleases she’s indirectly profitting off of her follower’s anxiety and i don’t think she realizes how completely immoral that is because if she did she wouldn’t have made it in the first place now i think this users comment really sums up what i’m trying to im going to go ahead and read it to you and honestly i totally agree i dont think these influencers understand the amount of influence they have with the platforms they have your title is literally influencer you have influence over people so you need to go ahead and think that you are actually having a good influence this merch scandal is a prime example of influencers not using their head

    Not a disease (but a disorder) but I well, was as bad as a vegan in informing the world that I had Asperger's, but now that it's trendy to be on the spectrum( as well as having depression, anxiety, and other mental illnesses), I keep mum about it to not be lumped in with others.

  • Reply Lauren Jackson December 2, 2019 at 7:09 am

    I agree with many statements made in this video, but I also disagree with a lot as well. As a person who's clinically diagnosed with severe depression & had two hospitalizations, I wasn't too comfortable with the reiteration of telling people that they shouldn't make "relatable posts," and telling them to not be proud of of their mental illness. I do think it's strange if someone seriously feels like depression is fun, but I've only ever seen/heard people sarcastically talk about living with mental illness. It's kind of something many people are stuck with and the best way they know how to open up to the world is in a lighthearted manner. The best way they know how to cope is by laughing about it. I do not agree with very explicit messages like "suicide is dope" or something like that, but someone sharing a post that says "My anxieties have anxieties" isn't necessarily harmful or like they're necessarily trying to romanticize anxiety so that it's cool. Some people just need to vent. If making dark jokes helps someone cope so that they don't self-harm themselves, I don't see why people are angry with how someone chooses to cope. At the end of the day, mental illness sucks. We're all trying to figure out how to deal with it. I do believe depression/anxiety/suicide rates are increasing, so just because more people are talking about it doesn't automatically mean "oh now depression is trendy to have." Yes, people may lie about their mental health status, and that should be talked about. But wanting people to feel ashamed for something they can't control & wanting them to wallow in silence isn't the answer either. Oh & telling people that they need to go to a psychologist before they talk about feeling depressed is a bit ignorant & lacks compassion for people in lower socio-economic standings. Mental Health Accessibility is not readily available for everyone (shock).There are many people who cannot afford health insurance, haven't come out to their families/friends with their emotional/mental struggles out of shame or how they'll negatively be treated, and many areas don't have psychologists, therapists, or psychiatrists in their areas or a direct means to get to these resources. So instead of shaming someone for not being able to "just go to a psychologist," I think you could have really taken this opportunity to research & explain others way people can receive help.It's almost 2020 & the world is still trying to figure out how to handle mental health so I am happy that we're having these conversations, because many people are in desperate need of help & healing.

    Warning a little bit of a rant…

    Well last year it was a trend to have depression and cut yourself at my school. My friend, Lets call her Maddie (not her real name) would cut her wrists, like really bad. Maddie, cut herself all the time, she would do it only to make someone feel guilty, she would do it so people feel bad for her or so she wouldn't get yelled at by her parents. She had everyone wrapped around her finger, she got everything she wanted and everyone had to watch what they said around her so she wouldn't hurt herself. I even told the councilor about it because I actually believed she was depressed, I wanted her to get better and get help, But guess what I'm the bad guy for trying to get her help, I fucking didn't want her to kill herself, I worried about her every. single. day. So she wanted me to let her cut herself. She wanted me to just sit there and watch, watch like everyone else was. That is exactly how I realized she was faking it all, if she actually was Depressed she would have wanted to get better. She would have wanted to not be so "sad" anymore. I know I sound like a dick saying this but I genuinely think she was doing it for attention. As soon as it wasn't a trend anymore (when I say trend I mean everyone in my school would do it, even if they didn't have depression) she completely stopped. She was so happy every fucking day. Coming from someone that was diagnosed with severe anxiety, it made me absolutely sick and disgusted. The worst part is, she will do it every once in a while, so I cant even confront her about it, or she will call me a shitty person, and make me seem like the person in the wrong. Everyone that is friends with her is being manipulated, and i'm the only person that finally woke up.

    Honestly, there's one more problem with romanticising mentall illnesses. Some people that really have problems with their mental health can start thinking that their mental illness isn't as bad as they thought it was, because everyone on the internet has them… and they never go to a physiologist and never get the help they need, so for them it gets worse and worse, and then they feel lost, thinking they're not sick enough to see a professional, or to even check if somethings wrong… maybe they really need help, but just don't want to be viewed as those people on the internet making jokes about mental illnesses

    what happens when you're drowning in these posts online of anxiety and depression all around you, you start to doubt if people really have it, but at the same time you feel bad for doubting. what sucks is it sorta becomes like an unspoken competition to see who has it worse; to score the most pity points; and get the most recognition for it. Your personal struggles begin to feel irrelevant to others, and instead of feeling a sense of relate-ability with your peers, you feel like speaking out will only be seen as another meme. It begins to feel like no one is gonna take you seriously, cause you're not a "special case" and "everyone gets depressed sometimes" self deprecating humour is a painful double edged sword.

  • Reply ᴛɪɴʏʙᴇᴀʀ. December 5, 2019 at 4:26 pm

    I am really glad you made this post. I have been diagnosed by a psychiatrist and psychologist on my bipolar disorder which had ruined my life. I have to build myself back up from the wreckage I made; while at the same time TRYING to not blame myself and go into a depressive episode.
    It is so hard to have mental instability. ITS SO HARD. And I wish every morning of my entire three years of diagnosis and even before that time when I unknowingly struggled with this mental illness, to not be this way. It has ruined friendships and traumatized my family. Bipolar disorder put my life at risk and almost destroyed my career. It gave me intense symptoms of anxiety and panic attacks.

    It hurts seeing people whom are completely fine self-diagnose. I was really troubled by Corinna's post and I am really troubled by people whom talk about having said mental illness when what they describe ARE COMPLETELY NORMAL FOR EVERY DAY FUNCTIONING.

    It makes me so sad because I don't understand why an overall mentally stable person WANTS to have the illness(es) I possess. If I could give my illness to those influencers, I would. I don't want bipolar disorder. I don't want to be completely HAUNTED and scared of my own mind.

    But yeah, the romanticism of mental illness has to stop. It's not like we glorify having a broken leg right?

  • Reply Milky Frappe December 5, 2019 at 5:55 pm

    My two cents:

    I really hate people that say they have mental illness when they obviously don’t. Like as much as I love her I have this one friend who says she has an eating disorder yet whenever I get food from the canteen she literally jumps towards me and eats half of the shit i have in my hand.

    But on the other hand I have a friend who i wouldn’t say struggles but definitely has depression and anxiety since my school got kind of scared and bought her a therapist that diagnosed her with bipolar personality disorder, Anxiety, depression and schizophrenia.

    In addition, I hate it when people make jokes about thirteen year olds being ‘depressed’ which annoyed me because no matter what age, race, colour and religion someone can *be depressed at a young age*.

    13 reasons why. Like communism it is a good idea in theory (jk) but like Luke says it isn’t good when Hannah shows up in the show which I agree because as Luke says you do not get a second chance in life so it kind of makes you feel like you can get a second chance. As well watching thirteen reasons why it kind of seems like Hannah commutes suicide as revenge. They also do not do a good job of representing mental illness well…

    Ok, so this comment will probably drown in the sea of comments but still. I liked the video but here are some critiques that i have about it:
    1. Maybe talk a bit slower. It might be easier to understand and pay attention to what you're saying.
    2. A bit more in-depth research could really help. While your key points are backed up with good examples, I would recommend going deeper into some things. For example, the fact that Hannah Baker's suicide scene might not be romanticizing, but it also didn't follow a series of guidelines the W.H.O. made when dealing with this type of subject to avoid copycat suicides or other effects.
    Other than that, this video does address the subject appropriately and I would say it's overall pretty helpful.

  • Reply Ebvardh Boss December 6, 2019 at 4:30 am

    People don't fucking understand depression. Not even people who think they have it, but just faced despair.

    Despair is not depression. Depression is like being a rat stuck in a cage with other rats, and you see they press a button and get fed. So you press the button, and you notice you get a little less food than them.

    In some cases, you get no food. Some rats just stop pressing the button because they can't tell when they get food or not. Some rats hit the button so hard they hurt themselves, and some of them only get food WHEN they hurt themselves. Some rats just fucking kill themselves because they don't realistically see food coming any time soon.

    It might be a whole month of no food. Hell, you might not even remember when was the last time you got food because nights and days and weeks blur together.

    In my analogy, "food" is actually positive reinforcement. It's the inate motivation that makes you know when you did something right and you should continue to do it. It's the satisfaction you get when you did something that made your life right.

    Clinical depression is doing those things and not feeling the natural reactions you should have as a consequence of having done them. It can be so bad that it can be separate from your activities, the blessings in your life, your attitude on the subject and whether you're active physically, and your diet is clean.

    Your life could be wonderful and STILL you don't feel it. It's as if you knew a food is delicious, but it tasted like ash to you. You've had it before, you see people love it, but it tastes of nothing to you.

    Imagine that. If you have that, get help.

    >.< such a controversial topic but in all honesty, a lot of what’s put out into the internet is a form of self expression. art takes so many different forms, life is a form of art in itself and unfortunately mental illness is a huge part of many people’s lives. art is up to interpretation but i feel like the sum of people who are authentic but do end up “romanticizing” mental illness are just expressing their pain through art. i do believe tho, a disclaimer/trigger warnings on the topic could be helpful if someone does decide to artistically express their mental state. someone’s healing process could unintentionally impact someone in a harmful way, so in a sense of being considerate i understand where you’re coming from. thanks for being so well spoken! you did an amazing job at expressing your personal opinion without rudely ridiculing those that could oppose your own. 🙂

    The movie Heathers is a iconic black comedy on mental illness. In which a popular mean girl named heather was murdered and her death cause was given mental illness. Which was a decoy by murderers and the high school students glamourise and romanticize her death. Eventually leading to be loved by all ,even those who thought she was a bitch.

    And this lead other mental illness students to commit suicide to be loved by all ,even in exchange of their life.

    I absolutely cannot stand it when people romanticise any mental illness, especially anxiety. Anxiety isn't something I'm proud to have, I suffer every day because I can barely get out of the house or do anything with my friends without panicking and Im scared that its pushing everyone away from me. I cant even go to the store and buy MILK without freaking out the entire time. Everyday I wish I was 'normal' and I wish I could just do things without having to worry about 'what people will think' or 'how stupid i am' for doing something so minuscule….screw people who are using mental illness for 'likes' or putting such things on shirts and hoodies.

    Thank you for making this video . I appreciated it . I am someone who struggles with depression and anxiety since I was 13 years old . Back then , a lot of people have told me a lot of awful things when I bared my fucking soul to them about my depression and anxiety , they have told me it is all in my head , that I am being dramatic , that I need to think more “positive” , that my self injury and suicidal attempts is just my way of seeking for attention . Then later , my depression got a lot worse because I started having ptsd (post traumatic stress disorder) due to childhood abuse and rape that happened to me when I was eighteen . It makes me so angry when there is a group of dumbasses trying to make mental illness into a trend . It is not a fucking trend . It is horrible fucking thing that causes an alarming rise suicide attempts and unfortunately successful ones. No one of people with mental health asked to have mental illness . I certainly didn’t ask for it and I have to live with that everyday . The thing is I wish I could make my suicidal thoughts and urges to cut myself go away completely . But it takes a lot of time and practice not to give in to these thoughts . I am actually finally in a place where I have finally stopped playing a game of “ I will never make it , I know I will die before the age of ….” . I wasn’t living , I was just mellowing through and that if things get bad enough , I would kill myself . But not anymore . I was so fucking tired of thinking and living that way . Anyway , people who think they want anxiety , depression , or any sort of mental illness should go talk to people who have them . It is not fun to have it ,and often times it can be fucking scary . Just yesterday , a friend told messaged me that an ex friend was having delusions and was talking about me ( she is friends with him and sometimes would talk to him) .This ex friend told my friend that he thinks I am a witch and part of a cult which I am not . I was scared for him but mostly sad because there is no getting through him ,hence why we are not friends anymore .I am sad I couldn’t be there for him but at the same time he had hurt me a lot and I couldn’t take it anymore no matter how much I love him . It is horrible to hear about my ex friend refusing to get help and getting worse . So anyway , yeah , mental illness is not romantic nor it is fun. People that you mention in the video have absolutely fucking no idea what hardships people with mental illness go through . Not only , they deals with their own mental illness but they have to deal with the idiots online spreading misinformation which is both dangerous and cruel .

    I used to know a girl that preached mental health initiatives all the time and blame everything on her anxiety, yet she was the biggest jerk I had ever met. It was so odd how she would preach so much about mental health, but goes out of her way to put people down or try and turn people against others by spreading malicious lies and rumours.

    I wasnt as open about my depression but she knew about it… and she would spew so much bs at me because she thought she knew everything, but act completely different than someone who actively cares about mental health and wellbeing.

    What? Anxiety is a mental illness? I thought this was an emotion just like joy or fear. I am not a native english speaker so that's probably why. Also i don't want to seem like i devalue psychologists and mental illnesses, but do they really need to give everyone a mental illness sticker? I mean where is the line between someone having deep passion for something and obsession? Or the line between being more worrysome and anxiety. I think that at least in some cases, being diagnosed with a mental illness makes things even worse. Imagine being told by someone who you trust and think of as a professional that through no fault of your own you are somehow mentally worse than other people. I would certainly feel defeated if i had to live with the feeling that my inner self, my conscious self, my me, is somehow broken and now i have to put up a long, difficult and possibly aimless fight against myself, to try and be "normal" again. I think we slowly start to misuse the term mental illness for what should essentially be called annoying or unwanted personality trait. I know that this comment may spark some anger becouse, yeah i am that guy that will say "don't worry about it", or "start running or something". My knowledge on psychology and mental illnesses is very poor, but i do believe that there is at least a bit of truth and reasoning to my statement. I will appreciate any constructive criticism towards what i said.

    I hate ppl like this… It honestly sucks dude. So, for the past couple of years, I've had suspicions that I may have depression.. I've been wanting to tell my parents about this for awhile, but bcuz of depressed 14y.o. being a meme, I keep crawling back into my shell instead of telling them to get me an official diagnosis (or not, then again, Idk if I actually have it or not) or get any other form of help. What's been said in this vid about this sort of thing making ppl with actual REAL issues get ignored or become scared of saying anything bcuz of thought they may be ignored, is true. I honestly don't even know why I'm typing this since no one's gonna see it anyway, but in case someone does, take this stupid romantisizing by social media seriously. I'm not trying to be another edgy teenage attention whore you normally see floating around the internet in the sea of comments on Yt. I'm just trying to be honest with someone.
