Stigmas are negative social attitudes about perceived differences between people and groups. This can be based on a range of characteristics such as appearance, behavior, beliefs, social position, and background. Stigmas can cause debilitating shame, isolation, and exclusion from necessary medical care and other forms of support. Overall, stigmas cause barriers to accessing and maintaining recovery and are difficult to dismantle.
