As someone who has struggled with moderate to severe mental health issues my entire life, I believe it’s a fundamental right for all of us to be able to make as many jokes about it as we want. You don’t want to just make jokes, of course, you also want to get professional help when you need it, but humor can be a great part of processing and sharing our experiences.

All that is to say, these are some slightly dark but really funny and honest mental health memes I enjoyed and I think you will too. Check ’em out.

12. Keep that frown right-side up

The brain wants what it wants, for some reason.

11. Special delivery

Out of bed in 30 hours or less, or it’s free

10. If you havin’ girl problems I feel bad for you son

Jay-Z, meet Lay-z

9. Keep it tight

Good thing I’ve got this beard to hide me.

8. Jekyll & Tide

There are two wolves inside you. They don’t like each other.

7. Sleep is life

If you awake you a F*ke.

6. A histericalectomy

Please celebrate with me.


5. Tug-of-bored

I’mma need my mental illnesses to get on the same page.

4. Medicated medium

All things in moderation.

3. Shot through the head, and you’re too late

Baby you give love a “meh” a name.

2. The cycle continues

If you think about it, life is just a series of naps occasionally interrupted by having to do stuff.

1. Can’t clock out yet

My shift never ends.

Hits close to home in a very satisfying way. Remember, if you’re struggling right now, don’t be afraid to reach out. There’s no shame in it, there’s whole professions set up for it, and you have people out there who got your back.
