Being among people strains me, I also have failures in reality. Philip (18) describes his struggle with mental illness

Must read

Depression, anxiety, mood swings. A year ago, 18-year-old Philip developed psychological problems, and a few months later he had to seek emergency psychiatric help. What is his experience of functioning mental health care in the Czech Republic? It is said that during the crisis he was admitted to a psychiatric hospital. But he considers the subsequent long-term treatment more important. He also found it difficult to seek outpatient psychiatric help, but it helped that, as a near-adult, he had previously been under the supervision of an adult psychiatrist.

“Many young people around me have similar problems. This is how I see the last two years. I know that my conditions cannot be resolved within a few weeks, but this is a longer process,” Philip explains. At the very beginning, he himself trusted his mother, with whom he began to seek professiol help. According to him, trust is the best thing a person in a state of mental crisis can do. “Children need to know that they don’t have to be ashamed of mental problems. When you feel that you are not alone, you will feel much better,” Philip says.
