Do you think there is still a stigma around mental health issues/depression etc? Watch
For example in the workplace and maybe even everyday life? I was diagnosed with depression some months back but I'm getting better slowly but surely thank god! But for some reason mental health issues have come up in topical conversations with a few friends and some of them I've told about myself and what's happened with me and they seemed to have distanced themselves from me after that. Obviously not everyone is like that though
Yes, sadly there is still a large stigma with it. I'm hoping with the recent very sad news about Robin Williams it will help more people to be aware of the issues of Depression etc.
Yeah there is still stigma. Tbh, I don't see the stigma ever fully disappearing as a lot of people will still be ignorant to how much a mental health condition can get to a person despite educating them on mental health.
Is strange how some folk actually deny the existence of anything detrimental to mental well being despite Doctors, Psycholigists and everyone else saying its a real issue, and that it's a simple issue of "pulling yourself together".

And if you say you have an issue people tend to think you're either some crazy nutter who will murder everyone or a depressed person who will suicide.
Not much interest in the awareness and understanding of 'normal' people. It'd be nice to see all of these people who seem upset when a sad video is posted on Facebook show the same anger and compassion in real life.
