Is there someone in the closet?

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.

    Education and awareness raising for sure are so important. Especially in this age where we are so divided by the Internet and along political lines. 🙏

    No one has the right to put another person into the closet for their disability

    1. For COVID-19, it is about social distancing and not social isolation. Public needs education. 😐🙏🙏🙏
