Mental health stigma arises due to lack of understanding and awareness of supporting mental health. People often feel hesitant to share their struggles for fear of negative judgment and comments from others. Mental health stigma keeps people from seeking help from others.

it is an illustration of a shame. It's likewise shame when an individual with dysfunctional behavior is taunted or called powerless for looking for help. Disgrace frequently includes erroneous generalizations.

There is such stigma surrounding the subject of mental health: people with mental health problems don't ask to be sick: they are health patients like any other. It's like you wouldn't insult someone for having a broken leg: why should mental health be any different?

I know many people who have mental health problems and - even though life can be hard - they get up every day and try to live a normal life.

If someone you know has mental health difficulties, find out more about them and do be understanding.

I like your post here. You've said things that resonate with me. And perhaps with many other people: even those who have to cope with people close to them who have mental health problems.
