Stopping the stigma of Mental Illness starts with you learning about your condition, so you can better educate people.
People say things that hurt, but we must combat it with love. When people put us down for our mental disability we need to educate them about it. The stigma of addiction is a taboo and we aim to to change that!
Ending the stigma takes education by learning more about our condition, so we can teach others why we do the things we do!
"I can do all things through Him who strengthens me."
"Do not fear, for I am with you; Do not anxiously look about you, for I am your God. I will strengthen you, surely I will help you, Surely I will uphold you with My righteous right hand."
“Come to Me, all who are weary and heavy-laden, and I will give you rest. Take My yoke upon you and learn from Me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For My yoke is easy and My burden is light.”
" It will always hurt to be laughed at, snubbed, ignored, or attacked by others. But I would remind you that the human personality grows through adversity, provided it is not crushed in the process."
Dr. James Dobson
"Others have the belief that only crazy people go to counselors, so they are reluctant to admit to themselves or others that they need help. As a result, people who could benefit from counseling fail to get it."
Dr. Gary Collins
"Negativity only leads to failure or mediocrity ultimately leading to sabotage of this stage in recovery with any attempt for better than average performance."
