In a webcomic about the way people with mental illness are treated versus the way people with a physical illness are treated by others, Robot Hugs makes an apt comparison of how the biases people have, especially about mental illness, shade the way these treatments differ. All too often, people who do not suffer from mental illness think that "fixing" a mental health concern is a matter of simply "getting over it". Those who do deal with a mental illness, however, know that this process of getting to one's best mental health is all but a simple fix.
