Hi I'm new. I'm a student Nurse who also happens to be bipolar. We are doing our mental health week at uni this week and at the end of the week we do a presentation. The other students at uni don't know I'm bipolar but when we were deciding who was doing what bit of the presentation I was asked to look into how people with mental illness are affected by stigma and discrimination. I don't think I'm ready to come out to the other students but I do feel a responsibility to tell all these future Nurses about the discrimination people face so I'm going to use my own experience but I also want to know how discrimination and stigma affects you guys and what experiences you have had so I can share them with my class mates. Would really appreciate it. Thanks
