Welcome to End The Stigma
This website is run by Aidan O’Connell.
The purpose of this website to fight the stigma that exists in Irish and global society surrounding Mental Health.
Aidan is trying to change stigmatisation on Mental Health by writing blog entries, having Guest Bloggers, and using a wide range of Social Media platforms to establish connections and make change happen.
1 in 4 of us will experience depression, anxiety, panic attacks, bipolar disorder or another of the myriad of illnesses under Mental Health at a point in our lifetime. Some of these make a fleeting visit to our lives but others can be lifelong or appear following a traumatic incident.
I don’t see any difference between physical and mental illness and, having lost friends to suicide, witnessed discrimination against people declaring mental ill health in the workplace and experienced mental health difficulties in the past, this is a subject very close to my heart.
I have decided to use my Psychology and Communications knowledge and skills to join the increasing number of advocates for the complete removal of discrimination against mental health problems.
The website has now relaunched with thanks to Matrix Internet.
