Hi guys, Dr. Eeks here. For the record, any blog I’m associated with, I try to make that known in the first few sentences. So, this blog has to do with me.
Recently I wrote a guest pieces for the National Association of Mental Illness ( NAMI) on stigma, doctors and med students with mental health issues, best evidence-based ways to reduce stigma and more on the motivation to publish my story, Manic Kingdom.
Reducing the stigma against mental illness is something that should concern all of us. It’s unfair, it’s uneducated and it holds all of us back. Let’s continue to reach out, share stories, be heard and collectively stomp the stigma.
