Interesting read. Stigma is real. People are scared that anything to do with the mind.

It shows how hypocritical mh professionals are too. They shouldn't be working with people who have mh problems if they have that attitude. I have considered working in such a role (outside hospitals) in the past but I always knew they wouldn't want to employ me for having mh issues or it would be difficult, and also hearing some of the attitudes of people in those jobs I would have had to bite my tongue and do things I probably wouldn't have been comfortable with.
