Is stigma and discrimination around people with mental illness increasing or decreasing?
With all of the celebrities speaking out about mental illness, I think stigma is decreasing.
I definitely think that the stigma is decreasing but I wish that funding for research would increase.
I would certainly hope that in the PROFESSION that I elected to choose that I have the compassion to NOT prejudge anyone for any reason.
Certainly MY CO-WORKERS feel as I do.
I don't think there is enough treatment for most mentally ill. Where I live they closed many mental hospitals. Many of our mentally ill end up in jail or homeless.
I think it is going down, but only slowly. It is still hard to hear people talk about people with diagnosis in general and negative terms. We are all at different stages of our own personal mental stability.
