The Stigma Of Mental Illness In Nigeria
Mental illness is a serious health issue the same way cancer, HIV and other medical illnesses are ► Subscribe to BattaBox on YouTube: http://goo.gl/4dgy2r but for some reason, in many parts of the world, those that suffer from mental health problems are stigmatized. In Nigeria many label the individuals as possessed by 'evil spirits', dangerous, troublesome...instead of acknowledging that they are people that are perfectly capable of functioning in society if they are given the proper medical care and treatment! So BattaBox met up with a young Nigerian man, Olamide, that has schizophrenia that has been labelled a criminal, to find out how he manages his mental health and just generally learn more about his day to day life in Nigeria. "He's a good person. Whenever he has money he gives money out, he buys children things, so whenever I see him in this conditions, I go crazy!" one young man talks about Olamide's character. "I am his father's mother. His father has exhausted his savings over his case and now he's fed up...we pray God resolves his case this year," his grandmother tells Timothy, "In the middle of the night, he wakes up screaming, strips naked and proceeds to run around the street completely naked." She goes on to state that the situation was so bad one day that people almost set him on fire at Sura market because they couldn't understand what on earth was going on! Even when someone offered him a place to live, looked after him, helped him get back on his feet, society didn't allow him be! Rumours swirled that the good samaritan was using him for ritual purposes...the negativity got so bad that the man had no choice but to ask Olamide to leave! I hope this video sheds much needed light on the hurdles men, women and children that suffer from mental health issues in Nigeria face every single day and has changed/enlightened YOUR perspective. If you would like to reach out to Olamide, please send a message to contact@battabox.com and we will put you in touch with him.

Breaking the Stigma and Shame of Mental Illness | Kitty Westin | TEDxFargo
Suicide leads to over 44,000 deaths each year in the U.S. Stigma against people with mental illness is a major contributor to this unacceptably high mortality rate. Kitty uses heartbreaking true stories and scientific facts to help the audience understand ways to challenge their thinking and join the fight to reduce stigma and shame. Kitty Westin, a licensed psychologist, founded the Anna Westin Foundation (now known as The Emily Program Foundation) following the death from anorexia of her daughter, Anna, in 2000. Soon after Anna’s death the foundation opened Minnesota’s first residential treatment program for eating disorders; The Anna Westin House. Kitty is an advocate for people affected by eating disorders and has become a nationally and internationally recognized authority on the impact mental illness has on individuals, their families and the community.

Major Challenge To Treating Mental Illness Is Eradicating Stigma
Scientists, politicians, clinicians, police officers and medical workers agree on one thing: The U.S. mental health system needs a big fix. Too few people get the help they need for mental ailments and emotional turmoil that can destroy livelihoods and lives. A report in the October JAMA Internal Medicine, for instance, concludes that more than 70 percent of U.S. adults who experience depression don’t receive treatment for it. New research suggests that the longstanding but understudied problem of stigma leaves many of those suffering mental ailments feeling alone, often unwilling to seek help, and frustrated with treatment when they do. Sociologist Bernice Pescosolido is from Indiana University in Bloomington. She told Science News, "Stigma about mental illness is widespread. And the current emphasis on mental ills as diseases of individuals can unintentionally inflame that sense of shame." Investigators say an effective mental health care system needs to address stigma’s suffocating social grip. Pescosolido says, “If we want to explain problems such as depression and suicide, we have to see them in a social context, not just as individual issues." https://www.sciencenews.org/article/erasing-stigma-needed-mental-health-care http://www.wochit.com This video was produced by YT Wochit News using http://wochit.com

Mental Health Stigma Hurts Us All
MENTAL HEALTH STIGMA HURTS Holding a negative view of mental health may result in the suicide of someone you know. Words that discriminate hurt. Prejudice against people because of something beyond there control has historically decimated and humiliated groups within society. Society's hateful view of mental illness is making it so that people who need help - will not get help. Over 30,000 Americans die from suicide every year. A good portion of those that attempt suicide will never seek professional help. The barrier to getting help is often the result of the negative view society has of mental health. Everyone has mental health. Stress is a mental health condition. 1 out of 4 people have a mental health condition and could benefit from mental health treatment. (http://www.nimh.nih.gov/health/publications/the-numbers-count-mental-disorders-in-america/index.shtml) This project was created in collaboration with the following organizations: Margaret Clark Morgan Foundation Mental Health and Recovery Board of Portage County ADM Board of Summit County Akron Digital Media Northeastern Ohio Speaker's Bureau http://www.mikestratton.net Interviewees in this video were: Angella Fawn Cory Kouns Erin Hirsch Lee Post Laureen Kemp Valentina Stratton Lisa Marie Griffin Ronald James Toth Sally Nitz Fred Frese Ovetta Joi Dixon Nancy Montagna Joel Mowrey Interview Transcript: Angella Fawn: "Were just people like everybody else. Mental illness is a brain disorder." Cory Kouns: "What are you doing out of this pit that we thought that we were going to have you in". Erin Hirsch "We are just as normal as anyone else. I was going to take my life". Lee Post: "Everyones like mental illness, what should I do. I look at myself as a person." Laureen Kemp: "Seeing other people treated differently because of there mental illness is not a reason to be treated different." Valentina Stratton: "Society discriminates against mental illness. A couple of times I went off of my meds because of it". Lisa Marie Griffin: "People have told me you don't look like you have mental illness and I have asked them why, are the ears suppose to be in the middle of my forehead, maybe my lips on my neck, they think were monsters." Ronald James Toth: "Were going to fight this illness". "Sally Nitz: "If you tell people, you have mental illness, like I've done, they look at you differently and its just really something we can't help really." Fred Frese: "People with mental illness were considered to be possessed by demons and devils" Ovetta Joi Dixon: "I think that people lack even the desire to understand it because its easier to go with the jokes." Nancy Montagna: "I need to control my behavior, and its not just us with mental illness, but all people, the ones that as Fred Frese would say, 'the normal's', they also... everyone has to have an idea of what is self control." Joel Mowrey: "If you stressed, stress is a mental health issue among many other mental health issues that we all have". Video Text: Suicide takes the lives of over 30,000 American's every year. Many who attempt suicide never seek professional care. Mental health discrimination is destroying society. We need to change our view of mental health. The change starts with the person in the mirror. The change you make has the potential to save a life. The life you save may be your own. Your view of mental health makes treatment inaccessible. 1 out of 4 people have a mental health condition. 1 out of 2 households is effected by a mental health condition. Mental health is a change in thinking, mood or behavior that effects your daily life. By 2020 depression will be the second leading cause of disability in the world. People who are depressed may be to ashamed to get help. People who are alcoholics may be to ashamed to get help. People who are angry may be to ashamed to get help. People who are psychotic may be to ashamed to get help. People who are lonely may be to ashamed to get help. People who are scared may be to ashamed to get help. Have you ever been depressed?

Mental illness is debilitating. And only the sufferer fully understands the burden. Sitawa shares a riveting story from her childhood to who she has become, a champion of the voiceless. As an eighteen-year-old, Sitawa was a victim of sexual assault. In the aftermath of this event she experienced significant depression, was suicidal and developed a mental health condition that she still suffers from today. With no support system and rising medical bills, she dropped out of university. She found it hard to keep a job, facing stigma and misunderstanding in the workplace. Out of this experience, a decade of fact finding, and a burning passion to see all Kenyans have the chance to access proper support and information concerning mental health she launched My Mind My Funk. Sitawa is now a three-time award-winning mental health and epilepsy crusader. She has a certificate in mental health advocacy, sits on Kenya’s Mental Health policy review committee and serves as the Assistant Secretary in the National Epilepsy Coordination Committee.

Breaking The Silence (Mental Health Documentary) - Real Stories
Check out our new website for more incredible documentaries: HD and ad-free. https://goo.gl/LwMcmY This documentary gets to the heart of suicide in Northern Ireland and examines the human debris of the family and friends left behind. Breaking The Silence is a sensitive and powerful portrait of the trauma faced by families in the aftermath of suicide, and the journey towards coming to terms with this deep, personal tragedy. Each story builds towards its awful yet inevitable conclusion and, by allowing interviewees the opportunity to talk through their own painful stories, the film also helps to prove that those left behind can ultimately travel the long road of healing. The film challenges the audience to consider why such a potent stigma still surrounds suicide and mental health issues, and also looks at the important work being done by the Niamh Louise Foundation - which is made up of individuals who have been similarly affected - to prevent further deaths by suicide.

Recovery Stories - Episode 6: The Stigma of Mental Illness
For people with a behavioral health diagnosis, the reality of stigma is all too familiar. They know from first hand experience how people react to finding out that someone they know has a mental health diagnosis. Individuals forget that they are dealing with a person, and begin to think in terms of negative stereotypes that work to define people with mental health needs as "other," "abnormal" or "one of those people." In the sixth installment of the Recovery Stories series, people with lived experience talk about how they have dealt with stigma, and how it works to separate people with behavioral health diagnoses from the so-called "normal" people. The message shared by these individuals is that people with lived experience are people first, and deserve to be recognized for their humanity, not for their diagnoses. Please take a moment to listen to their thoughts, stories and insights, and share them to help break the grip of stigma in your community.

Mental Health and Mental Illness: A Christian Psychiatrist’s Perspective- Dr. Jonathan Lee
Is depression really the result of a chemical imbalance in the brain? Is anxiety always a sin? How should a Christian understand PTSD? One in five people in our churches will be affected in their lifetime by depression or anxiety, but mental illness remains a hotbed of controversy, misinformation and stigma. In this practical session, Dr. Lee will offer a holistic Christian perspective-- incorporating both medicine and theology-- to equip laypeople, pastors and biblical counselors to serve those who are suffering from mental illness with greater empathy.

Mental Health Conversations in the Media | Kelsey Wettig | TEDxPSU
Mental health is a subject that almost exclusively spoken about in a negative context despite its prevalence in society. In an effort to shed light on common misconceptions, Kelsey Wettig highlights different areas of the media where stigma is cultivated. As someone who copes with an anxiety disorder, Kelsey actively looks for ways to inspire others that may be struggling with a mental illness by speaking candidly about her own experiences. She has even taken her platform to the stage of Miss Pennsylvania, a preliminary competition to the Miss America pageant, in order to reach a larger audience. Her latest endeavor is launching http://stigmastopshere.org, a collaborative mental health blog encouraging open communication and the starting of positive conversations geared toward eliminating stigma. Kelsey hopes to demonstrate that courage is contagious, and that a mental illness does not define who you are. Kelsey graduated this past December from Penn State with a degree in Advertising and Public Relations. During her sophomore year, she joined PSU’s mental health awareness club Active Minds and began speaking about her experience in living with Generalized Anxiety Disorder. Once she realized the impact her story could have in helping others, she decided to take her platform to the Miss Pennsylvania stage in order to reach a larger audience. Her latest endeavor is Stigma Stops Here, a collaborative blog website that encourages open communication on mental health.

Shanghai Tulip: breaking China's mental health taboo
Chen Wei was a successful businessman until he was diagnosed with bipolar disorder in 2003. Not happy with the services available, he founded China’s first support group for people suffering from depression. In a country with widespread stigma around mental illness, it was a difficult move. His parents feared for his future. But the needs are great: some 6 percent of China’s population of 1.2 billion people suffer from depression. “I think that maybe in 30 years, the public will be well educated about mental illness. They will know how to deal with it just like they do with a cold”, he said.

Locked Up and Forgotten: India’s Mental Health Crisis
India is currently suffering a mental health crisis. With only 43 government-run mental hospitals serving a population of 1.2 billion, resources are spread thin. What's more, mental illness is highly stigmatized in India, especially among women, who are typically committed to mental health facilities with no legal rights, receiving involuntary treatment, and sometimes without a proper diagnosis. VICE News travels to Maharashtra to investigate what it’s like to be deemed a woman with mental illness in India today.
