There is a stigma surrounding mental health disabilities. The depiction of individuals with mental health disabilities in the media adds to misunderstanding and fear among employers and reticence among employees who have these disabilities. We can easily relate to these disabilities. All of us have experienced sadness surrounding events in our lives, worry about situations or loved ones and vivid reminders of past situations.
