This movie illustrates the following issues which we discussed during our Mental Health Literacy Unit. 


Stigma is a cluster of negative attitudes and beliefs that motivate the general public to fear, reject, avoid and discriminate against people. Stigma is not just a matter of using the wrong word or action. Stigma is about disrespect. It is the use of negative labels to identify others.



A stereotype is a widely held but fixed and oversimplified image or idea of a particular group of people.



Prejudice is agreeing with the stereotypes.



Discrimination is unfavourable behavior that may result from stigmas, stereotypes and prejudice.
