[Video] Curing the Mental Health Stigma
In this episode, we want to discuss the stigma that is being associated with mental health. A lot of mental health and suicide prevention organizations mention overcoming the stigma of mental illness because people are challenged by the stereotypes and prejudice that result from misconceptions around mental health.
If you've seen our previous episodes, we always condone remedying the cause instead of the result. We want to have a discussion about what causes the stigma if any.
Is there a stigma against people's mental health? Is it just an excuse to prevent accountability? What needs to be done around the subject of the stigma that will help people with mental health issues?
This episode was made possible by Start Day One, a non-profit foundation for mental health and suicide prevention, which has a different approach to helping people by proactively reaching out instead of reactively waiting for mental health issues or suicidal tendencies.
Nobody can go back and start a new beginning, but with your help, we can inspire people to start day one and make a new ending.
