  1. I've felt bad for what I am and what I have, I've always thought I was bad or that I am not a socially amd emotionally functional human being. I appreciate this so much, she seems to be a great troubled humam beimg that actually cares. :')

  2. Yes more people are off kilter but stigma holds them back from sharing what they need.I have agoraphobia!

  3. She misused the word โ€œpsychoticโ€ in place of something more like sociopathy, the psychotic illnesses are more varied and important than she touches on

  4. When she talks about "the voices" is she talking about different voices or our own internal voice? The one that re-runs the shameful, embarrassing, cringe worthy occurrences we all have done throughout our lives?

  5. I hear this 1 in 4 people quote made by many speakers but it's total bullshit the way they explain it. It is 1 in 4 people will propably have a mental illness problems during their lifetime but its not like 1 in 4 people at the current time got a mental illness.

  6. I love you. Unfortunately, for some people when they have physical illness, apparently it's not a big enough issue to cure or even medically acknowledge it either. They're just claimed neurotic or a hypochondriac because that label gives them super powers making it impossible for them to contract anything.

  7. This was so amazing! What a funny, beautiful, bright soul! Made me smile :). We're definitly not equipped for the 21st century, too right ahhh

  8. The thing is the mental hospital i went too was HORRIBLE it was a poorly run, and put together and they were VERY lazy and i wanted to leave right away

  10. Dave Chappelle went through this, too. People kept telling him "keep your chin up". "Oh really? That's what the problem was? My chin was too low?"

  11. I thank God for her so very much!!! Everything can get broken but your brain๐Ÿ˜ข๐Ÿ˜ข But she make it into laughter and I love this๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚๐Ÿ˜‚ Love you sweetheart ๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ™๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—๐Ÿ’—

  12. I have watched a few speech about depression but this one is the best. She didn't just let people understand what it means to be one in four but what it feels like to almost everyday to be in four and four because the 21st century couldn't just understand that making it seems like a stigma is making everything worse.

  13. Mental illness doesn't exist, regrettably it's a figment of some drug-pushing money-grubbing loathsome, bacterial, sewer-scum psychiatrist's imagination; to operate as a HyperParasitoid upon you www.glennfloyd.org/oped.pdf

  14. i knew a crazy kid in hi school he always made me laugh he was so nut i love how pissed off the teachers.

  15. This lady is amazing. I suffer from major depressive disorder with psychotic features and delusions. She really puts it all in perspective. She is amazing!

  16. schizophrenia literally means split personality and is what Jesus dealt with when he cast demons out of people.
    Drugs only seem to work with schizophrenics because they dull the brain so much that the demon's instructions cannot get through to control the person – the same way that alcohol makes the brain shut down.
    Take a schizo off drugs and soon the demon can get full control again – this is the reason so many 'cured' schizo suddenly become murdering monsters!

  17. People Donโ€™t Want to Kill Themselves They Just Donโ€™t Know How to Kill the Pain!!!!!!!!!

    Every Thunderstorm Runs Out of Rain!!!!!!

  18. This is excellent. I always found Ruby Wax entertaining when she used to have her interview shows, but she is doing so much more for humanity with her work in the field of mental health. I have several friends who have really suffered with depression and anxiety, and Rubyโ€™s presentation really gives me more of an insight and understanding into what they are going through and why… more so than many of the much longer, more traditional presentations on the topic. Well done, Ruby! ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ

  19. Between the toxic chemicals emissions from chemtrails and 5G rollout weโ€™re all doomed, this is a global genocide. We will never see a beautiful deep blue sky again, only palest of blue to a blanket of white toxic soup. Pharmaceuticals is the biggest scam of the century, itโ€™s no wonder people are suffering today more than ever. There are more diseases more sickness more mental illness more cancer, do your research, check out Dane Wigington for an example

  20. Thank you so much for the video! I loved it. A big hug for Ruby Wax and all nice people who are here to watch the conference. Have a nice day โค๏ธ

  21. I've suffered from depression most of my life, but only recently has anxiety been added to the mix. I'll take depression, I'll take anger, anything but anxiety and fear. Luckily, hopefully, my first and only panic attack was due to a reaction to a new medication. Three weeks later and I still don't feel exactly right. I can instantly bring on the fear again just by thinking about it. Writing this comment is leaving me with a slight tightening sensation in my chest. It's amazing. I wish I could instantly cause my brain to release dopamine and serotonin as easily as it can seemingly produce adrenaline and cortisol. In these past few weeks I've learned more about anxiety and depression than I ever thought possible. Knowing it's a real, physical illness, understanding it's as simple (and terrible) as stress causing our poor brains to activate our ancient 'fight or flight' mechanism, helps enormously. I prefer the term brain illness, instead of mental illness, for all the very reasons she mentioned, that stigma, people thinking you can "perk up" and be cured. I do believe most (not all, of course, some need meds) of us can fix our brains through habitual changes in our thoughts and lifestyle, though. The one thing that seems to pop up in every study on anxiety and depression is the evidence that exercise can be a game changer. It has to be significant, aerobic exercise daily. Some studies have shown you can actually overdo it, which might be why marathon runners aren't immune to depression and anxiety. In other talks she's given, Ruby praises neruoplasticity. That too is very encouraging.

  22. RUBY ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค— Fucking love ruby wax โค๏ธ

  23. Yes, people do enjoy victimizing people having mental health issues. Even friends, relatives, parents, siblings, hospital staff, hospital administrative and nursing staff, doctors, psychiatrists, bus conductors, drivers, cleaners,…. It's universal. Because they must be finding it irritating. Well they got a disease then.

  24. I honestly think Ruby Wax is as funny as toothache but joking aside shes hit the nail on the head here……..Well done!๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿป
