Drew a version of this a while ago for my psychology teacher to hang in his classroom. The way people so often misinterpret legitimate mental disorders is probably one of my biggest pet peeves.

Um, I’m really sorry to butt in here - but depression is not just a mental disorder! It’s an emotion, too!!! People are able to just feel depressed!
Although, I will say that there is a big, big difference between feeling depressed and being depressed! uwu
Insomnia is defined as having trouble falling asleep for any period of time, including just one night. Chronic insomnia is probably what you’re thinking of here, but when somebody says they had insomnia last night, they are totally correct.
Also, panic attacks are defined as “a sudden episode of intense fear that triggers severe physical reactions when there is no real danger or apparent cause.” and many sources will include right after the definition that “Many people have just one or two panic attacks in their lifetimes”. Panic attacks happen to nearly everybody and are a completely normal thing in humans.
So please don’t discredit people’s actual problems just because they don’t have a ‘Disorder’ to go with it.
