mental health is something that millions of people suffer with on a daily basis it impacts your life in a way that makes everything around you a challenge and can spiral out of control if left untreated and unnoticed we have discussed mental health before on this channel and I can't stress the importance of addressing a problem if you truly have one to get the proper help suffering from a mental illness can impact everything in your life making it more difficult from maintaining a healthy relationship to doing something simple as going to the grocery store the following are simulations of five different types of mental illnesses and hopefully it will shed light on how truly crippling it can be to a person and help you better understand how devastating it can be some of these simulations made aster of those who do suffer from a particular mental illness so we will inform you of each type before showing the simulation if you need to skip past because the last thing we want this video to do is trigger any negative reaction out of you with that being said here are five realistic mental health simulations that will most likely terrify you we not only hope you enjoy but more importantly find it very informative and helpful we will also be donating all revenue made from this video to mental health charities anxiety anxiety is a vast topic that can be classified into several types of illnesses such as post-traumatic stress disorder generalized panic or social anxiety it is defined as a whole as an overwhelming fear or worry that is strong enough to interfere with a person's daily life being experienced by over 3 million people a year it's one of the most frequent mental illnesses that seems to be growing more and more by the year there are many factors that can contribute to this disorder like social media finances relationships and violence understanding how living with anxiety is is the first step in creating a solution for those who suffer from it social anxiety is one of the more personal and harshest as it affects the person not in their living space but in the daily world of human interaction it can in fact be so bad that people will avoid any sort of contact with other people we as humans crave interaction and communication and withdrawing from that and isolating ourselves is in fact only pouring fuel to the fire from something as simple as going to the store to purchase some items can in fact be a grueling task for someone suffering with social anxiety such as shown in the following simulation video we see a person walking into a store and instantly watching his every move going as far as making sure the door doesn't slam or even make a noise when he enters not wanting to be noticed or even announce his presence he tries to blend in and browse the items in the store and feels as if he is being watched by everyone the rapid heartbeat and panics breathing are scary effects that are all too true for those in these situations even when the man makes his way to purchase the gift to his sister the moment something doesn't go according to his plan he makes a break for the door to get out of the element and back into the safety of isolation take a look okay so what's the deal with you and Josh seriously okay I don't like him but I don't oh my gosh no she would not she loves to sex it's for my sister we don't do gift wrapping here okay it says truly sad and scary that people go through this everyday with things that should otherwise be a simple task suffering from social anxiety is that much worse though since I stated above it makes you want to distance yourselves from people however isolating yourself will only cause the problem to become that much worse obsessive-compulsive disorder obsessive compulsive disorder otherwise known as OCD is a mental illness that is the most common out of all mental illnesses its analyzed that one in four people suffer from OCD which varies in types of severity there are types where people just need to have certain things in a certain way such as their items on a work desk while others have to do certain actions a set amount of times before moving on such as grabbing a door handle five times or touching an object three times before moving on this is not only a difficult thing for the person suffering with it to live with but it also effects those around them such as spouses or siblings as they learn to have to be patient with the person while they do their unavoidable habits one of the most frequent and punishing things that occurs with a person with OCD is the act of following a routine the routine to them is natural however if they do so much just make a small slip-up in it they will feel compelled to start completely over which in turn makes them more frustrated and worried which will more than likely lead to them making another mistake restarting the entire process you can see why and we'll soon see how this can impact a person's daily life something as simple as walking to school or a restaurant are the massive complex and detailed tasks as someone with OCD in this video you're about to see you will watch as a young man prepares to leave his house and walk to school you're here in a monologue as he is walking everything from counting steps to worrying about seeing a red car from talking to his friend while internally folk singing on the fact that she is stepping on crack in the sidewalk the video is overwhelming at times and we should warn you that if you do suffer from OCD please skip this because everyone has a routine of how we do things and this may trigger an emotional negative response take a look what is my bag doing on the floor okay do I have everything I have my cord I'm a computer I have my notebook I think I'm forgetting something I don't know uh zipper goes from left left to right left to right and move that over to the right okay I have my keys my keys my keys good put that there my keys my wallet I have my wallet and my phone I have my keys my wallet my phone my keys my wallet my phone my phone my wallet my keys okay am I forgetting something I don't know okay left shoulder right shoulder okay and a sidewalk wouldn't be a sidewalk without the cracks now what it just got to get a good strike going and I should be okay till I get to school ah perfect ah Shh damn it oh I have to start over okay quickly quickly back there we go I can do this I can do this back to the start back to the start here we go and one more time right foot left foot left foot right foot left foot right foot left foot right foot yes yes I've got this I've got this here we go let's just hope I don't see any red cars how am i way to school that would be bad okay look at me yeah all right so a car perfect perfect and now we get to the flowers 17 flowers mourn 17 yellow bus yellow bus yellow flowers yellow bus perfect everything's going according to plan yo almost there damn should've looked eight ways all right that's what happens when you don't follow the rules don't follow the rules you don't follow the rules you don't follow the rules don't follow the rules all right back on track another person selling their house this is nuts what if they're all moving away because of me because my crazy antics because of oh I can't step on a twig are you kidding me I didn't see this I was too busy looking at the sign oh my it's like a minefield oh how am I gonna get through this alive manhole don't kill me now I am NOT standing around I need to get away from that chaos alright I straighten things out by walking on this don't fall up or you'll die perfect oh thank god past the hardest part of my walk this is truly a well-put-together video for someone who suffers from OCD it shows the nature of how a person manages it and what is necessary for them to be able to move on with their day what is seen as a simple walk to someone not afflicted is seen as a nightmare to someone who has an obsessive habit hopefully if you do have OCD you can or have taken the steps of finding treatment for it as nobody should have to worry if something slightly wrong happens schizophrenia schizophrenia is classified as a behavioral and mental disorder that affects a person's ability to think feel and behave clearly symptoms of the disease include hearing voices hallucinating paranoia and mental confusion along with many more the illness makes the person afflicted by it feel like they're doing something wrong or to question everything paranoia goes hand-in-hand with schizophrenia and it creates massive turmoil for the person since they're constantly having a battle with their own mind not being able to turn the switch off and from the moment of waking up to go into bed having the feeling of something bad happening at any moment and feeling completely vulnerable to that danger makes things being extremely difficult for the person for those of us who have never experienced something like this it can be difficult to understand what it's like and how badly it can make a person feel most of those who have schizophrenia are completely aware of it and know what they are hearing and what is real some have issued separating reality from their own thorns but that is what makes it such a scary mental illness they know it's there but they can't stop it imagine watching a TV show that you hate and want to use the remote and change the channel yet you cannot you see the remote in front of you but you cannot change it that is a very basic example of what it's like the following video does an accurate portrayal of a person's daily life living with schizophrenia and it's sad and scary seeing how badly it can completely take over their life take a look waking up now they know who you are so did you get my call I tried calling you about my package that's coming depersonalization disorder depersonalization disorder is a disorder that stems from intense or long-term stress or a traumatic event such as war or a major accident it is often seen as a sign of depression which could be argued but it's too often overlooked as just a person being exhausted and not alert dee dee is actually much worse because it's not something that is experienced for a few hours it can last days to months and can show no sign of improving or getting worse it just seems to come and go at random for many people dee dee is something that causes a person to become detached from many things such as people and hobbies a person will not want to go to a friend's house for dinner or have no desire to go and see their favorite band in town the long-term effects of this can be devastating as if it gets to a point where the person stops caring about their own health and being and begin consuming alcohol or substances to cope with the illness a good way to explain the disorder is like being any simulation ironically watching someone yourself go through the day-to-day activities however you're seeing all this happen but feel like you're on autopilot not being able to or have any care to stop what's he control of the situation feeling like you're in a prison in your mind the long-term side to this is not something anyone wants to go through as too many years suffering with dee dee can completely change your mental state with lacking basic human emotions such as love or empathy you feel as if you're a robot and just go along with things without much care the following video shows how persons suffering with the illness goes about their day notice the muffled noises around the person and how slow they are to react to many things it's like they're there but not there at the same time take a look it's pretty creepy being in this situation not being able to control your everyday actions and just going about your life any common routine not even getting enjoyment out of like and feeling as though you're just programmed to experience the same thing over and over can truly break a person's mind this may not seem as serious as some of the others on this list but after researching this topic and getting a better understanding we can see why it's such a severe mental illness after all how can you get treatment for something if you do not care to fix it sensory overload sensory overload is both a mental illness and symptom of other illnesses and something many of us have experienced it's best described as having headphones to the world in your ear and each sound feeling and sensation you experience is at the max level so you get the full blast of every one of them over over some following instantly after the preceding sound and then will be followed by four to five more sounds all within a few seconds you can see why this is something that can completely shut it person down as nobody can mentally focus on anything with constantly having their senses pushed and overloaded not being able to prioritize the sensations that are occurring in your brain can start leading to worse and worse side effects which can cause a complete shutdown the following video does a creepy job at getting it right with how the illness works from the normal sounds we all hear daily to them becoming more and more distorted which then leads to our brain overworking even more and not being able to stop anything coming in take a look [Applause] [Applause] so there were five mental health simulations keep in mind we are not trying to downplay mental health or use this video as a means of enjoyment or entertainment more so we are trying to raise awareness of these illnesses and educate the viewers so that they will be able to hopefully cope with the illness and seek out treatment or perhaps assist people who have a friend or family member suffering with one of these if you do have a mental health illness know that you're not alone and there are many people around you who do care even if it's someone you barely know they do care because your health and well-being does matter we hope you found this video informative and as always we'll see you in the next video you

  1. I was diagnosed with OCD not too long ago and I have to say that the OCD segment was relateable in some parts. However, I find it frustrating that the intrusive thoughts part of OCD are rarely if ever mentioned. We don't do these things because we need perfection and symmetry for the sake of it. Often we do that because of a debilitating fear that something awful our minds have conjured up is going to happen if we don't do them. Now, I don't like to speak for everyone with OCD, maybe for something this is very relateable. But I like to point out that this disorder is so much more nuanced that people realize. Great video though, I love that this really shows the reality of what so many people with these illnesses go through.

  2. I'm a person with anxiety and I wanted to see whether I could get through the video, but I barely got to the point where he started looking at a cup.

    All of this is way too familiar for me! I've been in the exact same situation and feelings for hundreds of times. I don't even want to see how it ends, because it's just that scary. Fuck I hate this 😀

  3. I wouldn't call OCD a mental illness, but it's definitely difficult for some people. I've only got it mild though, so I don't have to worry about it much. I could definitely relate with the OCD simulation.

  4. I knew a couple with schizophrenia. They were very nice people, were open about it and took their tablets. They managed it well and would rarely have any severe schizophrenic episodes.

  5. I live with schizophrenia. The worst part is peoples assumption's. I live with voices, but it does not mean they make me do things- in fact I argue with my mind and its informative and tiering. Everyday I make an effort to not look like I'm in a warzone and people treat me like I'm the war. If people could be schizophrenia informed?

  6. Like many others here, I also have social anxiety, and it angers me because I can't do simple tasks on my daily life. There was a time, that it was so bad that I literally had nothing to eat in my house, and ordering something is never an option, so I just starved for a couple of days until I actually had to go to the supermarket so I wouldn't die. BUT I found a way to help me go places without suffering too much: MUSIC! I put my headphones, loud enough so I can't hear anything else around me and go, and don't look around!

  7. That first one is very realistic. It gave me shivers and it made me cry because of how close to the mark it was. I've lived a long time now, and somehow I've overcome my social anxiety (though probably not entirely) This comment is for anyone who experiences this to a debilitating degree. It really is possible to overcome this kind of anxiety and when you do it's transformative. I promise you, I was like this video depicts and now I am free of that fear. I appear, and I 'am' quite confident in my actions and behavior. So much so that I still find myself secretly marveling at the difference.

  8. Good freaking job! I have social anxiety and it does suck I can usually manage by bringing someone with me so I can concentrate on us pretending it just me and my friend and we are the only ones that matter. If I think someone is going to judge my comments I delete them so even online isn't safe.

  9. I use to fear hellhounds were coming after me and were to drag me to hell, am not sure what it was I did watch a film but it felt real it was pure dread and anxiety and thinking if they get me who would stopped them save me from being killed and Prevent me from being dragged to hell but it went away lasted a few months I ended breaking down to my mom that I have such unnecessary fears all cause by anxiety my main problem but I manage to calm it down lately I’ve been feeling better now and days I just get random anxiety feelings but it’s fine . Going to a therapist to me felt like I lost the battle and lost all hope of getting better ( I’ve been suffering random anxiety fears or Intrusive thoughts for a good 5 years ) but I’ve been so much better lately simply just talk about about what am mentally going through with friends or family I can trust deeply and I feel would feel better but I know people out there have it way worse than me

  10. PTSD & Depression here. Time heals. Keep going. Believe it or not you won't regret the effort and pain you take while pushing forward, because it really does get better eventhough it seems it never will.

  11. I think this is one of the best videos you’ve made 👏👏👏 and top of the iceberg you’re giving the earnings from this vid to great cause ! My respect ✊ for you grew even higher (it’s high already ☺️)
    Thank You so much 🙏 both my kids have different disorders & both feel lonely, isolated & misunderstood, and I’ve OCD in milder form, it comes & goes ,but I got treatment) but it was hard to watch the OCD and anxiety part 😓 but healthy for me.
    So for you to show awareness means a lot for me.

    Thank you so so much.
    Xoxo Monster Mom ☺️👣🌻🇩🇰👍

  12. I suffer from OCD, anxiety (panic attacks and a bit of social), bipolar and ADHD, and frankly these simulation upset me more than any ghost or creepy videos i’ve ever seen, because they really felt too close to home; I even started to panic on the first three simulations, and felt dizzy with the last one.
    I’ve been in therapy for the last 6 years and it had helped me to live “normally”. It’s nice to see videos like this, so people who doesn’t have and doesn’t understand these problems become aware of the issues some of us have to go thru in daily basis.
    thank you @Top5s for this video.

  13. I have a lovely mix of anxiety and depression. It's so draining to be like that. I'm always tired,detached,indifferent,empty,life is a chore to me,I'm rarely happy…Always at war with your own mind…that's no way to live.

  14. The part about DD had me questioning myself… I am almost all the time very detached and indifferent to my surroundings. But it also a symptom of depression.

  15. The cruel irony that people with Anxiety don't want attention, but when they have a flare up they assure some people will notice them it's truly sad to see.

  16. I used to have anxiety when I was teen. I did not know it though, but checking now my situation back then, I am positive about that.
    I am struggling with light depressions for the last 15 years.
    And it seems, that I have experienced DD as well…
    The saddest part of this is, that I do not tell almost anyone, because in my country the mental diseases are considered as only hysteria by many.

  17. Schizophrenia isn't always like the video. I have it and hear voices but the voices sound like their coming from out side or through the wall and they talk about things I'm doing or thinking its like people are spying on me or reading my mind. I also get paranoid Sometimes I think YouTube video suggestions or ads are targeting me like if I get an ad for a rehab center I think my phone was listening to me when I talked about my struggle with addiction the day before. And I get paranoid that something bad is going to happen to the people I love if I call my mom while she's out and she doesn't answer I think she tried to answer and crashed her car and died. If I hear a bang from another room I think my family is in danger like someone came in the house and is attacking them or something like that. But luckily my riseridone is a miracle drug and I no longer have to deal with those issues. Its treatable psychiatrists can help make it stop just be patient you might have to try different pills just because riseridone works for me doesn't mean it'll work for you but there's lots of medications you can try.

  18. My mother was diagnosed with Schizophrenia about 17 or 18 years ago… That spiral downward was hard to watch. Worse still was watching her leave us. Rarely is there a day that goes by that I don't wonder if she is out there. Or still alive. I have no answers, no closure.

  19. god that social anxiety pov was so triggering like i heartbeat was pounding along with this guy and a lot of what was happening was relateable. I wouldnt abruptly leave and make a scene though just cause that causes even more unwanted attention.

  20. I’ve got ptsd and my crazy doctor says I’ve got severe anxiety and the attacks are horrible. I served overseas in Afghanistan from 13-14 and apparently it stems from that. The only way I can describe the anxiety attacks I get it’s like an extreme feeling like I can’t breathe, cold sweats, mild nausea and I shake. It can last ten minutes or hours depending on how bad it is. It fucking sucks.

  21. Thankyou for addressing this situation I and my partner both suffer this helped thank you bro x I have anxiety and ptsd and generalized anxiety I'm working on it and getting better. I hope every one who watches and needs held does get help good luck x

  22. I have ADHD and I'm a tad bit OCD, so I could relate to the OCD part about constantly thinking that I'm forgetting things and having to do things a certain way (I organize my books in my backpack based on size, I can't leave the zippers at the top of my backpack, there can't be a crack in my backpack, and my shoes have to be lined up in a certain way and they have to be in a straight line running across my wall). I get labeled as a "bad" kid because I tend to do stuff without thinking. ADHD is a really shit thing to have, but I can only imagine what it's like to have any of these mental illnesses. I think Schizophrenia and Anxiety hit me the hardest because I don't like it when one person is telling me what to do, let alone multiple people and I can't even tell them to stop. Anxiety sucks because even the slightest little thing can freak you out. God bless everyone with these nasty things because I don't know how they do it.

  23. These videos kind of give a good idea visually what someone is partially going through but you obviously cant replicate the actual physical pain you feel going through these or the great amount of anxiety and/or depression one feels as well. So just know this is not even close to what some of these actually feel like but at least gives a better idea for people

  24. The first one is exactly why staff need to be kind and friendly. I get anxiety episodes like this and a gentle smile can sometimes make it bareable enough to get things done. Especially the person behind the till.

  25. I smoke an insane amount of pot to deal with anxiety. It helps some but I isolate even more and it brings on depression
