Person 1: Someone forgot their meds this morning! Lol!
Person 2: Someone else forgot that someone listening takes meds and thinks this joke is offensive! Lol!

Don't get me wrong, I think humor is incredibly therapeutic. Even during my darkest times I was cracking jokes. A good, authentic laugh during a bout of depression feels like a deep breath 100 feet under water. It feels amazing. It feels hopeful. It reminds us that existing can be fun, light and lovely. 

This being said, there is a difference between laughing together about mental health, and laughing at someone else's expense. There is a difference between jokes meant to bring light to judgment against people with mental illness and jokes that further perpetuate stereotypes and stigma.
