Abstract:Poverty is viewed as one of the major contributors to stigma in this personal essay on labeling and its impact on people’s humanity. Mental illness, a disability with no visibly apparent indicators, is particularly explored from the author’s own experience in searching for recovery. Working toward empowerment for oneself and others is presented as a solution to overcoming cultural barriers.
