Thank you for sharing.
My activism project was about the negative stigma surrounding schizophrenia. A lot of people assume that someone who has schizophrenia cannot live any sort of a normal life. Media and society paints somebody with schizophrenia as a dangerous person and this is just not true. My project was to create posters to minimize these sorts of negative beliefs of schizophrenia. Many people see a “schizophrenic”, instead of a person with schizophrenia. Up to 40% of schizophrenics attempt to commit suicide, often because of the sense that the illness is a death sentence given by society.
