STIGMA — Scope | Disability forum

I am a young mum with a mental illness and I also have a toddler with cerebral palsy. For a long time I isolated myself, and was ashamed to share my own diagnosis with family and kept my daughters diagnosis from my friends. I didn’t feel comfortable to speak out because of the stigmas attached. I’ve written a blog about stigma, so hopefully this encourages at least one person so start talking!
