Sometimes on our bad days it is easy to feel like a ghost, existing but not living. This comic is a reminder that although bad mental health days can make us feel unlike ourselves, this feeling won’t last forever. It is important to acknowledge how we are feeling and learn to learn to cope in a healthy way.
