How Stigma Stunts Mental Health Care

Last week featured multiple worthy mental health causes: Mental Illness Awareness Week, World Mental Health Day and National Depression Screening Day. It was fantastic to see all the social media campaigns and support circulating to increase awareness and access to resources. While these initiatives are great short-term catalysts, we need to find a way to encourage individuals to extend discussion surrounding mental health year-round. The greatest barrier to achieving this is stigma.

Stigma is a societal problem we must face together. If we can work to collectively change our view of mental health conditions, we can begin to change the landscape where individuals cope. On NTSTLife, learn how stigma originates and hinders struggling individuals from seeking timely intervention or care altogether.
