People who suffer from mental disorder deserve respect and dignity. Let us continue the fight against discrimination and stigma towards those who are suffering from any type of mental disorder.

“Any other organ in my body can get broken and there’s no shame, no stigma to it. My liver stops working, my heart stops working, my lungs stop working. There’s no shame when any other organ in your body fails, so why do we feel shame if our brain is broken?”

Quote by Rick Warren ( His son died from suicide due to mental disorder )
