MH Stigma Awareness

“The stigma associated with mental illness harms the self-esteem of many people who have serious mental illnesses. An important consequence of reducing stigma would be to improve the self-esteem of people who have mental illnesses.” Source: ps.psychiatryonline.orgIt

It was during 2004 upon my discharge from Ward 27, of Wellington Hospital. Into Porirua Community Mental Health Services, that my mood either continued through. The Depths of depression or back into the stagnated state, of it.

In my view internal stigma is possibly caused by. A Health professional or friend or family member not thinking through, before talking sufficiently in an appropriately tactful manner. This is the ongoing state of unexpected internalised stigma.

“The stigmatizing of, and discriminating against, people with a mental health disorders is as old as humanity, but there has never before been a Zeitgeist, a moment, a social group, or the political will to focus on finding solutions, such as there is today.” Source: Understanding the Stigma of Mental illness; Theory and interventions. Author: J Arboleda.Florez, N Sartorius-2008

A comment made very shortly before I was admitted to Wellington Hospital or shortly after (by a flat mate at the time). Was: “If I’d known you would suffer from depression, I wouldn’t have lived with you”. Now it’s these kinds of external comments from people, which if anything. Only stalled my own personal ownership of my recovery journey at that particular time. Society not just nationwide, but globally needs to love all people equally. Regardless of people’s disadvantages some people may suffer from.

People can try in their own strength, and will power, even with the support of others. To own their recover, but if we are affected negatively by others attitudes. It unessacerily sets us apart from the rest of society. Lets consider alpine plants for example; they need a certain set of environmental conditions to survive. Likewise it’s the same for stigma, it needs a certain amount of negative conditions to be present within society. For the brew to exist, but if we were to say the opposite is true. The more people are made to feel comfortable disclosing, their challenges or disadvantages. Then it’s very possible stigma, may disappear! Lets hope.

Upon reflection it would appear people within nations, who are guilty of systemic stigma infliction. I can say they lack care/or altruism. We need to be having more discussions regarding how to cultivate a culture, where this doesn’t occur! I don’t believe anyone said life would be easy, for anybody growing up in any culture. But to sit around acknowledging that stigma is so strife, and blatantly not do anything to resolve it is simply corrupt in conduct.

Lets all allow a culture of recovery so strong, which burns so bright (starting from the heart). That stigma or discrimination is not experienced by anyone. That suffers from a mental illness or disadvantaged by their health condition.

Employment Stigma

In 2005 while working as a Caregiver in a rest home. Located in
Paparangi, Wellington NZ. Subsequently as a result of me putting the brakes, on a mans walking frame. Who was mute, a complaint was made o& this action of mine to management.

As a result of the employers complaint process conditions. For me to remain employed, was to attend temporary counseling. So despite my union at the time disputing this tactic, the employer persisted that some form of resolution be made in their representation of their clients family member. Thus I had to attend to it.

    I know tһiѕ if off topic but I’m looking іnto stаrting my
    oᴡn blog and ѡas wondering wһat all is needed to get
    set up? I’m assuming having a blog like yours would cost a pretty penny?

      Hi, Well publishing content is always time consuming. But semi-therapeutic depending on the topic. However in regards to cost, you’ll need to pay a website hosting company. For space on their servers, who also help keep your site secure etc. I use a US company called TMD Hosting for this. In addition the cheapest cost is paying for a domain fee. For which I recently changed domain companies to a Kiwi based company (to save me some $). For a domain company I use Crazy Domains. Any other advice you require let me know? Kind regards, Chris

    any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for

    content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.

    peoрle could conneсt with it better. Youve got an awful lot of teҳt for only haѵing one or 2 pictures.
    Maybe you could space it out better?

      I took the WP theme from WordPress. However I think I chose the colours. I use a company called TMD who are US based, for my web-hosting. However I’ve recently changed to use a New Zealand company called crazy domains to save a little. Hope this is helpful?

    Hi would you mind stating which blog platform you’re using?
    I’m planning to start my own blog soon but I’m having a hard time selecting between BlogEngine/Wordpress/B2evolution and Drupal.
    The reason I ask is because your layout seems different then most blogs and I’m looking
    for something completely unique. P.S My apologies for getting
    off-topic but I had to ask!

      I recommend WordPress as your platform, never had any issues with it. However choose your own hosting company, and domain company to lease products from. Then you’ll be fine. My layout is meant to appear as both creative but still professional. Which is why I chose it.

  24. binary today review

    May I simply just say what a relief to discover somebody that really knows what
    they’re talking about on the web. You certainly understand how to bring a problem to light
    and make it important. More people need to look at this and understand
    this side of your story. I was surprised that you’re not
    more popular because you most certainly possess the gift.

    Hello ,

    I saw your tweets and thought I will check your website. Have to say it looks very good!
    I’m also interested in this topic and have recently started my journey as young entrepreneur.

    I’m also looking for the ways on how to promote my website. I have tried AdSense and Facebok Ads, however it is getting very expensive.
    Can you recommend something what works best for you?

    Would appreciate, if you can have a quick look at my website and give me an advice what I should improve: http://janzac.com/
    (Recently I have added a new page about FutureNet and the way how users can make money on this social networking portal.)

    I have subscribed to your newsletter. 🙂

    Hope to hear from you soon.

    P.S.
    Maybe I will add link to your website on my website and you will add link to my website on your website? It will improve SEO of our websites, right? What do you think?

    Regards
    Jan Zac

      Hi Jan,

      I’ve looked at your website as requested, don’t have any immediate design suggestions. I’ve not used Adsense or Facebook Ads, I’ve mostly just listed my site via social media. But I’m considering adding adds at some stage perhaps, to see if it’l generate passive income.

      Regards,
      Chris Naylor

      Hi,
      Please excuse my delay in reply. So what’s your method in earning $, is it real? Is this related to adding Google Adsense to your site or different?
