    For far too long, mental illness has been stigmatized (on journal pages by professionals) and those stigmas have served as a barrier to innovation.

    Indeed, John, it would be nice if you could stop. I recognize you cannot, but how nice it would be not to encounter this prejudice from professionals. I suppose in a way it is very similar to the entitlements over blacks many white people could not give up until they had to, unit law actually stopped them. I wonder what value accrues to you from placing it on the page? Or what value you would lose were you to stop?

  2. I for one am happy to see anyone working to rid our society and/or world of the stigma which exists around mental health and addiction issues and which is often a barrier to folks getting the help they need and treatment.

    At LifeWorks NW, we believe life works when you get the support you need. There shouldn’t be stigma stopping any of us from doing so.
