17 Memes You Might Relate to If Mental Illness Makes You Isolate


Memes. In just a few short words and a funny picture, they can often perfectly describe what life with mental illness is really like — and what it’s like to isolate because of your mental illness. While there’s nothing funny about struggling with your mental health, sometimes a little dark humor can go a long way in reassuring you that you’re not the only one struggling.

Whether you’re using a meme to broach a serious topic you wouldn’t otherwise know how to talk about, or commiserate with a fellow mental illness warrior, humor can definitely be a powerful coping tool.

If you’re isolating yourself because of mental illness this week, we want you to know you’re not alone. We hope these memes can bring a smile to your face.
