Mental Health

To eliminate stigma:

First eliminate it from your mind. It ought not hold residence there.
Then decline to accept it from others.

Both are worthy achievements.

----eliminating the stigma of mental illness

An excellent idea. Eliminate in your mind, so long as it has a hold there it will endure.

Re: “First responders gather in B.C. to call for end to stigma in jobs full of trauma

----There's a stigma (to mental health issues)

Re: “When ski-town life leads to depression

----The WCSS moved to its new location at 8000 Nesters Road last year, effectively making its outreach program more visible in a non-clinical setting. Normalising mental health as a wellness initiative is imperative to "reducing" the shame stigma that often "surrounds" mental illness.

Curious, is it not, how often we are told stigma and shame surround mental illnesses? Quietly sneaking in to that rubric today is the thought of "reducing" stigma and shame, as if we ought accept some. No thank you.

Re: “A year after cross-country tour, Dennehys still fighting mental illness stigma

I am not sure I would trust anyone promoting the term "stigma."

Actually, I am sure, I would not.
