Why does this generation idealise mental illness?

victoriaxoxo
From experience every other person who’s under 25 has self-diagnosed themselves with 3/4 different mental disorders. My best friend thinks she has OCD because sometimes she makes lists when planning something, ADHD because she gets distracted and watches films/browses her phone instead of revising. My other friend thinks she has OCD because she doesn’t like a messy room and depression because sometimes she’s not in the mood to go out. My other friend thinks he is depressed because he smokes weed and drinks expensive whiskey and reads books about how genius and depression go hand-in-hand. It’s not a collectible, it’s an illness, so wtf?
