Stop the Stigma!

Mental Illness has such a stigma.  People are often called “crazy,” “psycho,” or “not all the way right.”  Over the years people who have the disease -who have been told this- really start to take on the self fulfilling prophecy and begin to believe it.  This only adds to them not telling family, friends, or health care professionals when they really need help.  If you encounter someone like this, please, try to support them in any way you can.  The first step is listening.
