Change the label : MENTAL HEALTH " and remove the stigma forever .

Had my beautiful, kind son Jordan, 27 years old , believed that he had a BRAIN IMBALANCE he would have sought help . Instead he was terrified of being diagnosed with a MENTAL HEALTH ILLNESS , being categorised as mad , insane and having this on his medical record. He chose to take his own life .
Where does this perception come from ? Historically those judged insane were admitted to workhouses, poorhouses and jails.Next came the introduction of madhouses and asylums where more inmates could be kept . Harsh treatments and restraint in chains were seen as therapeutic for the mentally ill who were viewed as unfeeling wild animals .
In one of the public asylums, BEDLAM , spectators could pay a penny to watch the inmates, a form of entertainment. In NAZI Germany , the institutionalised mentally ill were among the earliest targets of sterilisation and it has been estimated that over 200,000 individuals with mental disorders of all kinds were put to death, although their mass murder has received relatively little attention.
PLEASE help me to change the label "MENTAL HEALTH" and change the perception of mental illness.Remove the "STIGMA".
IF I WIN THIS COULD CHANGE THE WAY MENTAL HEALTH IS VIEWED FOREVER AND OPEN THE DOOR FOR PEOPLE TO SEEK HELP, ESPECIALLY VULNERABLE YOUNG MEN .
Open to suggestions on the Name change ?
BRAIN IMBALANCE ?
BRAIN DISEASE ?
THANKYOU JORDANS BROKEN HEARTED MUM.
