The truth about individuals with mental illness

My previous post discussed an article about a shooting that occurred in 2014 and it’s relation to mental illness. Often times, individuals with mental illness such as bipolar disorder, schizophrenia, and dissociative identity disorder are often portrayed as violent, crazy, and/or dangerous. However, that is not a accurate dicription of individuals with mental illness. The video below discusses the struggles of individuals with mental illness due to the stigma they face, and gives a more accurate description of individuals with mental illness. Let me know your thoughts and opinions. http://www.cbsnews.com/videos/stigma-against-mental-illnesses-hinders-progress
