Ziyad

Ziyad

Many people around me still see mental health problems as a sign of weakness, but I see it as a means for strength. It was in these periods where I grew stronger, also because I had people that were there to support me when I needed. I want to do the same and help end the stigma.

Societies stigmatisation of individuals with a mental health disorder is unnecessary. Being labelled as someone who is 'mentally ill' is a self for-filling prophesy that only seeks to make the person a mental health problem. Everyone is human and I pledge to treat everyone with that same respect.

I pledge to try and get people to see that one of the hardest things about living with mental illness is the stigma attached. How judgement isolates people and scares them at one of the most vulnerable times of their life. 'Nobody puts baby in a corner'. And no body should turn their back on someone in need.
