Stigma
The brain, like all other organs, is vulnerable to disease. People with mental illness, intellectual/developmental disabilities ore substance use issues often exhibit behaviors which others may not understand. Instead of receiving compassion and acceptance, people with disabilities may experience hostility, discrimination and stigma. The people experiencing the issues often label and stigmatize themselves. They may put up barriers which can prevent proper attention and treatment. This presentation explores issues of stigma and ways to overcome it.
