Dignity in Mental Health : Theme of World Mental Health Day (10th October) 2015

Ranjan Bhattacharyya

Abstract


Stigma and discrimination are significant barriers
to obtaining good mental health care and to
accessing the everyday social activities that keep
us mentally well. Stigma interferes with people’s
full participation in society and deprives them of

their families, caregivers, governments, NGO’s
(non-governmental organizations), professionals of
all kinds and the associations that represent them
would like all encounters to result in a positive
dignity experience.
