Dr Amer Siddiq on Mental Health

Episode 28

Stigma prevents people to come forward.

Mental health stigma is stronger than physical health problems

My thought:

  • have knowledge of your illness
  • come forward to seek help
  • speak to someone e.g. Befrienders
  • having more exposure of mental issues will also reduce stigma

WHO denoted a healthy person has good:

  • mental health
  • social health
  • physical health

We hope to make mental health stigma is reduced to the same level of physical health
