Hey again! I don't consider what I said a logical inconsistency if I'm honest, and I would be lying if I said I did. I mention depression and anxiety because those are the two main mental health problems that students will struggle with - not because I believe they are the only ones. I also didn't say that I believe they are the only ones either, so its disheartening to see words being put into my mouth on such an important subject to me. However, your point about those with hallucinations and psychosis is right, and I admit that I hadn't thought about psychosis when I said that statement. I was thinking more along the lines of BPD, Bipolar etc, which are issues that you have with your mind, hence the use of there word 'feel'. I agree that those who suffer from severe mental health issues may feel that they are not in control of what they are doing, because they aren't. My point was that there is a distinction between being depressed (one relatable example for students here) and being unable to do anything, but it is in your mind and there are ways to handle such thought, such as CBT. Physical disabilities are usually unable to be 'fixed'. An example of my reasoning is I can't say I have a disability and have people think I am speaking about mental health. I think the distinction is important here between physical and mental 'disabilities', though I am only speaking as myself, and I note that others may have more debilitating mental health issues that would be as extreme as a physical disability. I'm disappointed that you don't think my answer is satisfactory, but I invite you to ask anything else you may feel is necessary because every opinion is important to me. I'm sorry you feel I'm bering ignorant but I am also being honest and speaking from my experiences, as well as that of my friends and family. If you have anything more you'd like to discuss you could contact me on here, my Facebook pages or email me on firstname.lastname@example.org and I'd be happy to answer.
