I am boycotting normal because there is Life After LabelsIn 1999 The US Surgeon General David Satcher emphatically stated that stigma is the most important problem facing the entire mental health field. source
"Stigma is promulgated in part, through rules, practices, and processes of "liberal" institutions; for example, educational, medical, criminal justice, and social service agencies." (Corrigan, Watson, Byrne and Davis) 2005
"People with mental illness who face the most egregious injustices are most often those who are also stigmatized because of these additional stigmas. For example, the issue of who is able to keep his or her behavior and symptoms private--that is, who is not forced by circumstances to make their behavior public--is also a social justice issue. This is not to say that people with mental illness who have enough money and credibility to maintain privacy and confidentiality oppress those who do not, but that socioeconomic status affects how people with mental illness experience their mental illness."
