Stigma Fighter

Stigma Fighter

The lack of sensitivity towards the mentally ill can be seen in the casual usage of words-

Such as;  loony, wacko, psycho, nut, lunatic, etc., which can distort the public perception.

Fight against mental health stigma, and avoid using words; like crazy, mad, wacko, loony, or nuts.

Treating people with mental illnesses like you would anybody else, demonstrates respect for differences and dignity.
