Isn't there an unspoken mental health treatment paradox?
Why would anyone get mental health treatment when more than likely they will get labeled as some “wackado”? You read pamphlets and see PSA that ask you to get help if you feel you have mental problems to not suffer in silence. But if one takes that advice the mere fact that they did can work against them, stop them from being foster parents, getting a job or a job promotion, from having a successful campaign for office, etc. With so many people associating mental illness with dangerous people how do they expect those who really need help to get it? And how many go untreated or end up committing crimes or suicide they rather not risk being labeld in a bad light?
