(Dont) Call Me Crazy by Kelly Jensen

Who’s Crazy?

What does it mean to be crazy? Is using the word crazy offensive? What happens when such a label gets attached to your everyday experiences?

In order to understand mental health, we need to talk openly about it. Because there’s no single definition of crazy, there’s no single experience that embodies it, and the word itself means different things—wild? extreme? disturbed? passionate?—to different people.

(Don’t) Call Me Crazy is a conversation starter and guide to better understanding how our mental health affects us every day. Thirty-three writers, athletes, and artists offer essays, lists, comics, and illustrations that explore their personal experiences with mental illness, how we do and do not talk about mental health, help for better understanding how every person’s brain is wired differently, and what, exactly, might make someone crazy.

If you’ve ever struggled with your mental health, or know someone who has, come on in, turn the pages, and let’s get talking.

(Don't) Call Me Crazy

Sign in. The star of " The Boys " has a great Watchlist that she can't stop re-watching. Watch now. Title: Don't Call Me Crazy A documentary show about troubled girls who are are juvenile delinquents in Madison Juvenile Center. In the grip of trauma, hundreds of refugee children in Sweden withdraw from life's uncertainties into a coma-like illness called Resignation Syndrome.

It is six years since I was discharged from an adolescent psychiatric unit, though the memories of this time reside vividly within my mind. The programme offered a snapshot of life in an adolescent psychiatric unit. I was close to turning off as I watched the first five minutes. The sight of distraught young people being restrained face down on the floor made me very uncomfortable. I do not believe these scenes should have been broadcast and I am shocked that the health authority allowed this to be filmed. The programme appeared to be exploiting young people at their most vulnerable. I have no doubt that the BBC supported the young contributors, however one has to question how a sectioned young person can give informed consent to be filmed when deemed unable to make decisions about their health.

We all know adolescence can be a tough time emotionally. Some of us will know, or have heard of through friends, family or our own children, teenagers who struggle with depression, eating disorders and self-harm. Occasionally the subject nudges into the headlines, as with the recent suicide attempt by Paris Jackson, the year-old daughter of the late pop icon Michael Jackson. But the shocking extent to which, for young people in the UK today, emotional troubles can spiral into serious mental health issues is not so widely recognised. I was ashamed of my scars.
