Prejudice still exists the same way that racism has not been completely wiped out.


Something to make us smile: Someone asked; ‘What is abstract art?’

‘It’s  a product of the untalented, sold by the unprincipled, to the bewildered.’

 

Even though the media has been a bit more positive concerning mental illness and stigma, we still have a long way to go. But, the same way that racism has not yet been completely wiped out, prejudice still exists. Maybe it always will but I am trying to get this subject out into the open in order for people to see articles about mental illness, to learn more about it and thus be more understanding. Most of us are afraid of the unknown.

    The unknown is always frightening. That’s why education is so important and your blog which touches on subjects most are afraid to think about let alone speak out loud is so very important. Keep up the great work you do. You have no idea how many lives you have touched and made better.
