TED Talk: What’s so funny about mental illness?

4 Nov

I just watched a TED Talk by comedian Ruby Wax called “What’s so funny about mental illness?” in which she explains that it’s time that we put an end to the stigma of mental illness. Since I completely agree with what she said and I am passionate about the field of psychology, I just had to share this video with all of you. Let me know what you think of it! I’d love to hear your thoughts. 🙂

What’s so funny about mental illness?

How come every other organ in your body can get sick and you get sympathy, except the brain?-Ruby Wax

People who say they’re perfectly fine are more insane than the rest of us.-Ruby Wax

    This was great and have to completely agree with her Ruby Wax’s statement that those are say they are perfectly fine are really the most insane of us all. Thanks for sharing Amelia!!
