It is human nature to fear what we don't understand.

Due to misunderstandings and inaccuracies made by the media,(everything from news reports to movies for example) our society's view has been distorted, which has created stigma about certain mental illnesses.

DEFINITION OF STIGMA:
a mark of disgrace or infamy; a stain or reproach, as on one's reputation.

Bottom line is that we all must get more educated and stop using our fears as excuses.
