    I understand that some people in the world listen to music to escape from their own problems and not to be 'burdened' by sensitive topics. However the reality is that not enough people are talking about topics that are considered 'ugly' or only want to pay attention to topics that are only the romanticized version of what they actually are. To me, I think expression and awareness is crucial. I fully appreciate how you draw the spotlight onto mental disorders. Your music and quite literally, your existence is a gift to not just yourself, but to us all. Thank you, Ashley.

Its a tough road getting to recovery and trial and error through different medications and the side effects is literally hell - I finally get why people dont like meds. Thank you Halsey for being open about this, helps anyone who is suffering and I will do the same to help others!

    Halsey is really one of my role models and you can say why is that ! I hope that I could be someone who could help others to feel free to express their feelings to feel free to let things go and feel every single emotion , I hope that "mental health" will take a bigger place in this world because it's so important I hope we could help each other to feel more comfortable with what we are going through And I again I will be grateful for this beautiful women for being real and share these things with us I love you ❤️❤️

    Being passionate and being told what to do and put on hold and controlled in a situation with a person who is lied about being bi-polar, seems like the person or* someone who tries to communicate with someone abusing them that they are aggressive, when they are just so held back from being able to communicate and purposefully abused to hide a crime. Many people are lied on to seem a certain way, to hide terrible things done on both sides. Two won't don't make a right or a certain diagnosis. People in this world have many agendas. One of them is usually to think they can retaliate against someone's for something they did wrong and think that doing something wrong in kind is right. It's not though. On both sides when doing something wrong, karma is a bitch..

    She's so brave for sharing and educating us. The media desperately waits for everyone to fuck up to tear them down. I'm really happy this therapist reminded Ashley and all of us fighting mental illness that it's not our fault. Ashley reminds us that we should never settle for less. You are always enough.

    This vid appeared in my feed. I never knew anything bout Halsey except I had heard the name and I guess I knew was singer or rapper etc. Anyways this vid nice cuz it tells u stuff u never get from bipolar/mental health vids. The vids I usually watch are by drs & v useful but I like how this kinda takes things outside of pure medical professional box and into the real life box? Like living and family n friends and stuff. Hard for me to explain but thanx. N also, I like the soothing colors and atmosphere v calm n relaxing. Whereas most bipolar vids r not soothing n peaceful n fluffy but r very like a seminar n kinda hard n technical n not soft. This is Def a nice diff type of vid. So thank u :0) I have borderpolar & comorbidities. Tryna combine my knowledge of both by lookin online to supplement professional help. If u can do more vids like this it wud b nice pls? Thanks :0)

    Halsey I love you oh so much and always have. I never knew you had bipolar disorder. I do as well and so many of the things you spoke to really hit home. Having a million ideas and can't accomplish any of them - I experience that all the time and it makes me feel so defeated, like I will never be able to accomplish anything because of my illness. Struggling with relationships and not wanting to explain why I'm acting a certain way. Doubting that I will ever find anyone - someone who will understand and accept me as I am. I try to be an advocate for people and share my story and journey. Still, so many people in my life have no idea that I struggle with this everyday. I'm afraid of the stigma and people looking at me differently or treating me differently. The invisibility of the illness is both a gift and a curse.

    I hate it when people will joke and say "wow, I can't read today, I must be dyslexic" or " I'm in a bad mood, I must be bipolar today" that is SO RUDE! How dare they make fun, joke around about real problems that I struggle with. Folks need to stop coming from a place of ignorance and be more *considerate* of me and all the others who don't have it all together.
