IN ORDER TO READ THE WORDS MORE CLEARLY, PLEASE WATCH IN HIGH QUALITY MODE.

It is human nature to fear what we don't understand.

Due to misunderstandings and inaccuracies made by the media,(everything from news reports to movies for example) our society's view has been distorted, which has created stigma about certain mental illnesses.

DEFINITION OF STIGMA:
a mark of disgrace or infamy; a stain or reproach, as on one's reputation.

DEFINITION OF MENTAL ILLNESS:
n. Any of various conditions characterized by impairment of an individual's normal cognitive, emotional, or behavioral functioning, and caused by social, psychological, biochemical, genetic, or other factors, such as infection or head trauma.
Also called emotional illness, mental disease, mental disorder. 'dictionary.com'

Bottom line is that we all must get more educated and stop using our fears as excuses.
