We need to be reducing mental health stigma – not increasing it.

Healing From Complex Trauma & PTSD/CPTSD

This poster – the part written in white letters – is travelling social media. I’ve seen it posted by many people now – all with mental health issues.

Society already believes people

with mental health issues

– are dangerous, potentially violent and crazy.

Which is completely untrue,

and is stigma, media is increasing.

I added the words in red, because people need to realise the harm they are doing by posting this, for all of society to see.

Yes, people deal with their issues with humour – as do I – but there is intelligent humour and there is unwise, harmful humour.

It’s bizarre to me, that I have to point this out to so many people and then have to explain it further to people.

Many people truly do not see past their own egocentric needs – and don’t see the bigger picture at all.

Added…I am pleased…
