Mental Health Disorders on the Rise

The stigma of having a mental illness contributes to the rise of mental health disorders as well, with people being too ashamed to admit they have mental issues and refusing to seek treatment or take their medications. Kendra Fisher sums up her battle by saying that mental illness cannot be seen and that people have learned how to hide their symptoms and put on a brave face. Yet Fisher expresses the idea that the stigma should be removed in order for people to be more aware of the symptoms and not feel ashamed to seek psychiatric care.
