Phrases to avoid saying to people with mental health.

I suffer from Mental Health, something you may have picked up on if you read some of my posts. I have a whole section on Mental Health and anxiety actually so you should check that out. One thing I’m used to is people saying inappropriate stuff, offensive stuff and they don’t even know it.
