Mental illness/depression is always a touchy subject and I think you handled it with care. The quality of the art and writing is superb for something you made in 3 days. The main character of my latest game goes through something similar to Giselle. So I was able to appreciate the game even more.
I absolutely agree with that. Speaking from experience, Mine fits aren't violent to anyone except myself. Mental health does NOT get the funding nor the facilitates, plus sanitary place for specific individuals who CAN be a harm to themselves and to others; now a days just just want to put them in a room like jail, complete sensory depletion; only making the situation worse! And the fact a LOT of this is UNDIAGNOSED until they are adult and had to suffer with people brushing it off, and just calling them 'Crazy',. when so many times they cannot control their actuations or thoughts alone. With this economy Psychiatrists cannot do 'pro-bono' work or that would be their full time job and THEY'D be broke too. I just was fortunate to be diagnosed with SABD (Schizoaffective Behavioral disorder out of absolutely no where. Luckily I was given the 'mental tools *(Squishes, anything that has a spinner, so I can multi task, and I'm 32!Ive learned to calm myself down and not get on a stage where I cannot come back from. That's why sop many young people are acting out. they want to be seen, heard, paid attention to; but their parents ship them off to school where they get bullied even more. There were the the times I COULDN'T calm myself and if I didn't, after a certain amount of time trying I have to try sitting in my closet in pitch black for my own sensory deprivation , or I simply I leave the room unnoticed. They just think its 'Playful children, and its "normal" but so many times its not and its not what they need. I am very glad you brought this up. Because one of these days and so many in the past it went un noticed, or refused to noticed, and that's where we get the violence, the mass shootings, anything that was because no would listen. I am NOT excusing their behavior, but maybe if someone listened to them, the out come would have been different.. maybe not; fuck, I don't know. Just be kind, you never know what someone is mentally or physically going through whether you choose to acknowledge it or not,... its still there. Just Look.
