    Education that allows people to understand that a mental illness is no different from diabetes or high blood pressure. There is so much ignorance and fear.

    Sad thing is most times we just need to be more educated on the subject.

    Very informative study so far. really true if some one has different race or culture will suffer more with stigma.

    As a qualified mental health professional I realized that some ethnic minority refuses to seek help for mental health issue due to this stigma attached.

    Often people can be ignorant of others who have mental health issues as they don't understand their problems. Training or courses to assist are of benefit.

    Too often people don't even realize they are being insensitive or promoting stigma. How many times have you heard a joke that involved a mis-perception on mental illness or if someone behaves a certain way they are automatically called crazy?

    I think it is vital for people who are diagnosed with a mental illness to get help and follow through with the program with professionals (Psychologist, psychiatrists and family doctors). I wonder if the statistics include the situations when employers have no choice but to modify employment responsibilities or remove people from certain positions if their mental illness results in a safety or security issue for the person(s) involved and/or an economical issue for the company resulting from lack of performance by the person with the mental illness. This would not be discrimination. There are some jobs that can not be performed by some people with certain mental illnesses and I think that as hard as that is to say, it has to be recognized.
