Let the readers observe their surroundings and be more empathetic with other people. Make them understand that having a mental health problem is not easy and it’s invisible to the eyes.
Teach the readers to do mindfulness on their daily basis and make them know that having a mental health problem is not taboo and it could be treated well. Instead of exaggerating the perks of having a mental health problem, the articles should discuss more on how to compromise and understand the behaviors of those who have it.
We still need to educate the society about mental health problems and romanticizing those illnesses is not the way to make them understand; it will only create more problems.
In the end, making people proud of their own mental health problems is the same as asking people to cut their scar deeper into the skin; it will only get worse and need more time to be healed.
