I'm signing this petition because the stigma about being open about mental illness so often leads to reactions of disgust. The silent assumption on the part of most is that it is the individual's "fault". That they have a character flaw which, if they wanted to, they could correct. Because of ignorance, our society treats those with mental illness as a pariah. Not too different than the way Gays were treated up until now. Removing the stigma and increasing understanding of mental illness is the next horizon that must be crossed in the civil rights movement.

when a person suffers from mental illness and they cannot get the healthcare attention they need, it is not only debilitating for them but for their families too. We are all in some way affected by this issue. Let's make health care support, understanding and tolerance of mental health issues a mainstream item.
