STIGMA ON PSYCH WARD!!! Drug Addiction, Bipolar, PTSD … & Others



I was blown away by the #stigma of mental illness on the #psychward, especially because it was coming from a STAFF MEMBER!! This is an example of the shit we have to deal with living with #mentalillness. You’d think on the psych unit there would be more understanding… not cool. Not cool at all.

This is why I do what I do – creating content for YouTube and Instagram (@notsorrylovelori) to show that mental illness is just like any other illness. Also to destigmatize and lose the stereotypes associated with this, which runs rampant around the world I’m learning, not just in Canada. I’ve heard it’s even worse in other places and I believe it!

To those living with mental illness, to those learning about mental illness, and to greater society in general, know that most of us have suffered trauma when we were younger and this is our brain’s response to it. No more shaming, guilt, or judgement.

I filmed and edited this video the day of (yesterday, May 13, 2019) to keep you updated on my experiences as they happen.
