Ep 8: Don't Let Stigma Stop You
Welcome back to Discover Solutions, Feel Better Podcast. I’m your host Dr. Theresa Lewis. I’m a psychologist who’s passionate about helping people discover solutions and feel better, and I have so much to share with you to help you with your health and wellness goals.
Today I'm here with Malin, a graduate student studying psychology, and we're talking about recognizing the stigma surrounding mental health care so we can work to eliminate it in ourselves and in our communities.
Caring for our minds and bodies is usually seen in a positive light, but in some cases people may judge themselves or discriminate against others who are receiving mental health care.
Globally, these stigmas double in racial minority populations.
Openly talking about mental health is the first step toward reducing this societal issue.
Thank you for tuning in to Discover Solutions, Feel Better. I'll be back soon with a new episode for you. Until then, be well, be you and breathe.
