Let’s learn the facts before we stigmatize somebody.

  • Is it possible to learn the facts before stigmatizing someone?
  • Before we label a person, shouldn’t we examine their contents first?
  • Every mental illness has a human face. Confront the myths causing the silence. Just one lesson on mental illness in a classroom could make a huge difference to the lives of young people who’ve been thrown tragically off course by a depression, a bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, obsessive compulsive disorder O.C.D. or a panic disorder.
  • These are all no fault disorders. It’s no one’s fault.
  • Let’s teach people that Biology, and not a character flaw causes mental illness. These illnesses are treatable and the earlier they are taken care of, the better. There are warning signs.

    Yes…mental illnesses are no fault and treatable. Until families and people who are living with the illnesses stand proud and tell their stories..we will continue to be at the mercy of ignorance and superstition.

    It’s up to US!
