Accountability Within Romantic Relationships

Support our Nonprofit Magazine!

Before you start reading... There has never been a time when our community and content was needed more. Unlike other sites, we don't publish sponsored content or share affiliate links. We also don’t run ads on our site and don’t have any paywalls in front of our content–-anyone can access all of it for free.

This means we rely on donations from our community (people like YOU!) to keep our site running. We want to be here to support you all through this pandemic and beyond, which is why we are asking you to consider donating whatever you are able.

A single (or monthly) donation of just $5 will make a HUGE difference and will help keep our nonprofit running so we can continue offering peer support for mental health through our content.



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.
