The Everyday Stigma Project exists to catalogue instances of mental health stigma experienced on a day to day basis.
By sharing your story you are showing the world that mental health stigma does exist and it is a valid problem to discuss.
From careless and unhelpful calls to “snap out of it” or “cheer up” to amateur attempts to silence you with patronising comments about your mental health, stereotypes about violence, or any inappropriate use of “crazy”, “insane”, “nuts” etc directed at an individual, e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org and, provided it meets the criteria, I will upload your story.
If you are a supporter who can host this site on its own domain, an email would also be very much appreciated.
