I’m a 21-year-old woman. I have schizophrenia and my life with it shouldn’t have to be a secret. In recent years, the importance of providing better mental health advocacy, treatment options and services for the people with mental illness has been encouraged more than before.

However, those of us living with schizophrenia and other serious mental health conditions are being left behind because of the strong stigma that comes with it.

Researches have said that stigma is a form of social injustice that delays treatment attainment, promotes social isolation, stress and even puts individuals with schizophrenia at a higher risk for a more severe illness course.
