Are you or a loved one struggling with mental health challenges? Do you feel like you are silently suffering in silence due to shame about your situation?
Are you at a loss trying to figure out what to do or how to get help? Do you feel like this is getting in the way of your happiness and success?
It's time for you to begin Transforming Stigma.
In his revolutionary book, Transforming Stigma: How to Become a Mental Wellness Superhero, Mike Veny provides a simple solution to improve the lives of people struggling with mental health challenges. The agony of a lifetime battling his own mental health challenges led Mike to the realization that one of the most difficult obstacles in overcoming a mental health challenge is the Stigma Cycle.
The Stigma Cycle starts with shame; shame leads to silence; silence leads to sabotage, self-destructive behavior, social injustice, and suicide. It is a never-ending cycle that is experienced by people who struggle, and people who love someone who struggles, with mental health challenges. It is experienced by people living with depression, anxiety, bipolar disorder, borderline personality disorder, schizophrenia, substance abuse, and many other disorders. Mike's personal experience with the debilitating and vicious Stigma Cycle helped him learn how to transform stigma in his own life.
