🎥 Facing and Transforming Stigma Against Mental Illness
For the next three weeks, I bring you “Unfixed Mind: Living with Mental Health Challenges,” an incredible four-part documentary by my friend and colleagueKimberly Warner. The series is stunning, a must-see.
In this segment, “Facing and Transforming Stigma,” Ava, Jacob, Ricky, Kyle, and Dior address the stigma of mental illness. They discuss the challenges of navigating societal misperceptions about mental health—the pain, the loneliness, the shame—and the importance of learning how to embrace our personal stories and feel proud of who we are despite such challenges.
