Stigma

I advocate and fight for client’s right in mental health. There is a lot of stigma out in society.  Either there’s a lack of understanding or training in the mental health field. My opinion is that I feel that in all careers that involve medical, mental health, public safety should be trained and to learn more about folks that suffer with mental illness. I’ve run into some ignorant doozies in my day. Especially with police and hospital security. Hospital security thinks it’s funny when patients lose self control over their emotions. The police, some officers like to poke fun of folks that have mental health issues. I’m particularly not too fond of the way hospital security and some police officers present themselves to the mentally ill. The ignorance has got to go.
