Barrier to Treatment

Feb 20, 2019

To the Editor:

An article last week on a recent Stafford Township Council meeting, at which an effort to declare the township a stigma-free zone was announced, stated that stigma surrounding mental illness proves a huge barrier to treatment.

I differ. Teaching there is a stigma to mental illness proves a barrier to treatment (as does, of course, abetting those who teach it).
