Publisher's Summary

There is a good number of people in the world today who view mental illness side effects as debilitating and uncomfortable, fostering stigmas and discrimination toward individuals with mental health issues. When you admit you have a mental health issue, it can lead to different types of exclusion or discrimination, either inside social circles or inside of the work environment. This is why most individuals with mental health issues will not seek help for their mental illness.
Mental health stigma takes away from the individual character and creates negative generalizations. Most of the time, it is because of the lack of education or, more tragically, false information. And the individual with the mental illness suffers.
Here's a preview of what you'll learn:


Discrimination impact of stigmas
