I read about Harry Potter’s “No one deserves to live in a closet” and the homosexuals. And Dave Mowry relates about “Stepping Out Of The Mental Health ‘Closet’.”

Then I got sick. I was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. My life changed. people looked at me differently. Stop inviting me for coffee and other activities. - Dave Mowry

Stigma affects many people with AIDs, autism, mental disorders, homosexuality, and now, recovered COVID-19. It threatens to imprison them in ‘closets’.

Education and destigmatizing for better societal acceptance are important.
