The never-ending stigma We can all do our part.

Those who struggle with mental health are all around us and should be treated with respect. Some that are closest to us may be struggling and we could have no idea.

When those with mental health disorders are discriminated against, the likeliness of depression and feelings of inadequacy will rise. So, we must respect them and their disorder.

With the help of schools, the stigma towards mental health can greatly decrease and provide a safe environment for those affected by a mental disorder, something that does not exist currently.

Once we begin to educate ourselves about mental health, the ones diagnosed will become more accepted and will then create a better environment for all. We can all do our part by educating ourselves about mental health in order to change this never-ending stigma.
