‘Stigma is well-known as a significant stressor. Individuals facing stigma are more likely to be isolated and to lack social support. Plus, there’s the issue of ‘self-stigma’, in which individuals hold onto the same beliefs as the people stigmatising them – all of which raises stress levels.’

This is something that has to be addressed.”
