I hate when people say there mood is so bipolar. You have no idea what you are talking about. It is a chronic mental illness that is beyond difficult to deal with at times! ~ Bipolar & all mental illnesses are not anyone's fault. They cannot control it. You can just live with it as best you can.
Labeling: Mental illness is definitely something labeled in society. Sometimes people refer to individuals with mental illness as being "mentally retarded" or "psycho." People may label these individuals as "less of a person" than a person without a mental illness. These labels go on and on, like things such as "crazy", "mad", "stupid", etc. People may also consider these individuals as a danger to society if they are not medicated, hospitalized, or are in public without proper supervision.
Quote on mental health: Mental illness is the only disease that can make you deny its own existence. Certainly the idea that the brain can deny its own illness is a frightening thought. -Natasha Tracy. www.HealthyPlace.com
