“Respect, Not Stigma: A Mental Illness”

Article Link

Guest Post Posted on January 7, 2013 by Randye Kaye on the HealthyPlace.com website.   This piece was written by a high school student who explains some of the stigma surrounding mental illness and why it’s there, but also talks about how cancer or heart conditions are often viewed differently then a mental illness.  It’s a great piece, that I felt was well worth linking to.  I hope that more kids and adults start to get the idea that mental illness is an illness just like any other illness our body can be afflicted by.
