Inspirational Quotes: MENTAL ILLNESS

Spread the love

Sometimes what we need to hear is some supportive words that can lift up our spirit and mood so we can get through the storm that is raging on inside of us. It really is not fun having a mental illness. Many of us don’t choose to live with it, we just can’t avoid it. Since May is the Mental Health Awareness Month, I think it is just great to share some inspirational quotes about mental illness that will help you cope with your condition.


The Best Inspirational Quotes for

Someone with Mental Illness


If you live with mental health problems, it’s easy to feel alone. Sometimes, it seems that no one knows what you’re going through, and help — or even just someone who cares about you — is impossible to find. Ironically, of course, many of us live with — or have experienced — mental disorders such as anxiety disorders and depression.

Hopefully by reading these inspirational and supporting words, I can brighten up your day a little.

  1. This is a much needed article-these quotes are absolutely beautiful. My mother is developmentally delayed, and she is oftentimes misunderstood. Having a mental illness does not define you or lessen your worth-we are all fearfully and wonderfully made by God. We are all equal, we are all beautiful, and we all need to be reminded of that. God bless you!

    1. C.N.,

      Thank you for sharing such beautiful words. I do believe since we are all made in His image, then we are all beautiful people. No mental illness should define our worth.

      I really appreciate you visited my site and left a comment. Hope others would enjoy the quotes as well as you do.

      Stay safe, happy and healthy. God bless you too!


  2. I love these! I can totally see me pulling this page out and sharing it with clients I work with. Oftentimes inspirational messages are just what we need to pick ourselves up and keep moving forward!

    One that my clients like is this: The Devil whispered in my ear, “You’re not strong enough to withstand the storm.” Today I whispered in the Devil’s ear, “I am the storm.”

    1. Jess,

      Thank you for sharing such a strong quote. Telling the devil “I’m the storm”, that is so cool!

      I agree with you. We need kind and uplifting words to help us stand up and move forward whenever we feel down and can’t go on.
