This article examines the important role of language in recovering mental disorders. Mental disorders, such as depression, anxiety, or eating disorders, often affect people's communication and interaction with the world around them. In this context, language significantly impacts the experiences of individuals with mental disorders. In addition, language also has a role in reducing the stigma against mental disorders. Using appropriate and non-discriminatory language can help change negative perceptions and stereotypes often associated with mental disorders. In a supportive society, inclusive and sensitive language can open doors for more open dialogue and a better understanding of mental health issues. In this article, we will discuss more about the role of language in mental illness recovery. We will highlight the importance of using appropriate language in a therapeutic context, addressing stigma, and promoting better overall mental health. By understanding and appreciating the role of language in this context, it is hoped that we can strengthen efforts to develop and recover from mental disorders holistically.
