In this video, I talk about the issue of accountability in relationships where one of you has a mental illness, in particular depression and/or anxiety. Who should be accountable for what and why? I discuss this from both points of view–as the person who is suffering, and as the partner.
Having been in both unhealthy relationships and now a very healthy relationship while dealing with my illness, I try to convey what has made all the difference.
As the person with the illness, I discuss the fact you must be open with your partner and also recognise the impact your illness is having on them. From the point of view of the partner, I discuss how you must try to understand and support them but also look after yourself.
