    I have found that within peer groups at school, individuals spout all this crap about saying they have Aspergers and autism etc as an excuse for all their bad behaviour and using it as a joke when it is not to be joked about.

    What are your views and are you aware of these situations?

    Some people have a genuine need for support, some because of their condition are at an advantage. You can't put people in boxes (not you by the way).

    Sadly some folk just don't recognise an individual's special circumstances because of a lack of education & awareness.

    My view? Treat others how you'd like to be treated. End of.

    I've always been fascinated by this and that's why I chose to do psychology at university. In my own experience with depression and anxiety, I've noticed that the people who have the least understanding about those problems are always the most vocal and want to give their opinions, which is pretty annoying and sometimes hurtful because they really have no idea what they're talking about.

    If you're interested in helping me out with some mental health research I'm conducting a study for my dissertation and it includes stigma and the way people react to mental health problems. If you'd like to help me collect more data on attitudes toward mental health it'd be great to have your input, https://universityofsussex.eu.qualtr...Nxp6m8Zk8itgQl
