Promoting and protecting mental health

Before reading this, I usually looked at some people as crazy with mental health issues but people can’t help it. I see that their healthy just like every other normal person. I know a couple of people who know that they’re bipolar or need some kind of help, but their pride just won’t let them. I don’t think there is any need to be ashamed though if it’s something they can’t help. I often wonder why their so afraid though.
