Very sorry to hear.
I suffer from severe mental illness, social unbearability, and I've been there, at the place where I don't want to be here anymore.
Sorry for your loss😔

This is so sad. 😢 The government places many barriers for us mental healthcare workers, which makes it hard for those that need services to actually receive them.
