And the stigmatization of mental illness.
“There is enormous shame around mental health and so many people feel like if they’re struggling, it’s a shameful experience,” said Hutchinson of Boston University. “And so we’re trying to peel that away and say, ‘No, everyone struggles. It’s part of the human condition. It’s OK to ask for help because everyone needs it at some point in time’…Not only is the student who is struggling able to seek help without stigma but hopefully their friends and classmates are also able to support their friend getting the help that they deserve and need,” he said. “We really try to think about ‘Why is it that with mental health we stigmatize people for getting help but with other sorts of physical ailments, we would be very concerned if people didn’t go and seek treatment?’…Mental health stigma is keeping people from accessing the care they need, said Fullen of Ohio State. Combating that requires getting the entire campus community on the same page, he said.” (“Shedding stigma to stop suicides on college campuses”)
