Simon: Mental illness is like any other illness. It's not this imaginary thing you can just snap out of.
Lily: My mom says anyone can choose to be happy at any moment.
Simon: That's a load of baloney if you ask me.
Lily: In a way, I agree with her. We have more power than we think, we just need to learn how to harness it.
Simon: Okay, but if you keep trying and failing, it doesn't mean there's something wrong with YOU. Maybe it means you never got the help you needed. And we don't need more people blaming themselves for their disorders, we need a better system for helping people.
Lily: That's true, but you have to make the choice to get better, or else no one can do ANYTHING for you.
Simon: Yeah, and having more support makes it easier for people to make that choice.
