30 Days of Mental Health Awareness: Day 18

I'm taking part in the 30 Days of Mental Health Awareness Challenge. Every day I'll post in response to their prompts.

Day 18: What do you wish people would understand in regards to mental illness and/or mental health?

I would like people to recognize that they are a disease, much like diabetes or lupus or something else physical, and treat them with the same level of understanding and compassion -- meaning that people may be fine for a long time, then have a bad episode and need to take a few days off to cope. Or that people may need accommodations. And so on.
