The Stigma of Mental Health

Research suggests that the majority of people hold negative attitudes and stereotypes towards people with mental illness. From a young age children will refer to others as “crazy” or “weird”; these terms are used commonly throughout adulthood as well. Overall, increased awareness is probably one of the most important things that can be done to counteract these stereotypes.
