Stigma Should Never be a Barrier to Wellness

For many people, stigma can be a barrier to addressing mental health problems. Stigma can manifest in many different ways. There can be stigma against wanting to get help, or stigma against admitting that they suffer from a mental health problem. For certain populations, stigma can be more specific. New parents might feel pressure to be the perfect parent, or feel that parenting should come naturally. These feelings can be a barrier to getting services. For LGBT populations, there can be stigma about not wanting to be queer, or admitting that you are queer to your peers or community. If you have a mental illness, there can be stigma against being on medication long-term, or stigma against openly admitting that you are diagnosed with a mental health problem. We all can benefit from identifying stigmas we consciously or subconsciously have. Once we identify them, hopefully they will no longer act as a barrier to getting services, or interfere with the way we interact with people who may need support. By telling stories of people who articulate stigmas/barriers they experienced before getting services, others will become more aware of stigma.

But once it’s done its job, where does the oil go? Some of it (24 million gallons) is burned off or leaked out by engines. But the majority (83 million gallons) is recycled. The remaining 13 million gallons? It likely ends up improperly disposed of down storm drains, into lakes or streams, or thrown in the garbage.
