Stigma Reduction

#DoYourShare to support mental health

One of the greatest public health challenges of our time is the fight against stigma in relation to mental health. Although mental health conditions are common worldwide, people living with them very often experience discrimination and are treated differently. Fear, misunderstanding, and judgment contribute to stigma, social exclusion, and discrimination towards people living with mental health conditions. It can occur with friends and family members and in all spheres of life; at home, school, workplace, and hospital both in rural and urban settings. Recovery from mental health conditions is possible. However, stigma and discrimination get in the way and prevent people from seeking and receiving the help and care they need on the way to recovery
