The Harm of Stigma is More Than Skin Deep

Mental Illness touches us all, but to quote Chris Summerville: “Today is the best day to have a mental illness […]. Mental Illnesses are treatable, and recovery is Possible.”

Listen to this inspiring TEDx talk given by Chris Summerville, Chief Executive Officer of the Schizophrenia Society of Canada and member of the Canadian Alliance on Mental Illness and Mental Health.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Mental illness is not just a health issue, but a social justice issue! We are one of the wealthiest countries in the world, and we know more than ever about prevention, intervention and how to avoid relapse and re-hospitalization. By not providing recovery-oriented services, we are committing a social injustice.
