Stigma Takes Lives!

Often the worst part of a mental illness is not the illness itself but the societal shunning that results from it. Mental illness hits 20% of Americans every year, but because of shame and stigma, many never seek the help they need.
There’s no shame in mental illness. Most highly intelligent, creative people have one or another form of it. The damage is done by keeping it hidden, where it festers, warps, grows, and takes over the soul. Open up to the world. Never worry alone.
Stigma and the recent suicides of Kate Spade and Anthony Bourdain are some of the topics Dr. Hallowell discusses in his video on Stigma Takes Lives.

Let’s start a grass roots movement to eliminate the stigma and shame associated with mental illness.
Learn more in my podcast on “End the Stigma of Mental Health.
