IMG Helps – Stop the Stigma
The Effects of Stigma
Fear and misunderstanding often lead to prejudice against people with mental illness, STDs and addictions, even among service providers. It’s one of the main reasons why many people deter from getting help. This prejudice and discrimination leads to feelings of hopelessness and shame in those struggling to cope with their situation, creating a serious barrier to diagnosis and treatment. IMG has awareness classes to help change the stigma. Contact us for more information.
