Why it is hard for some to ask for help?
Stigma is defined as a set of negative beliefs that a group or society holds about a topic or group of people.
According to the World Health Organization, stigma is a major cause of discrimination and exclusion and it contributes to the abuse of human rights. When a person experiences stigma they are seen as less than because of their real or perceived health status. Stigma is rarely based on facts but rather on assumptions, preconceptions, and generalizations.
Stigma hurts. It can negatively impact a number of areas, including; willingness to attend treatment and access to healthcare, harm reduction, self-esteem and mental health.
It is okay to ask for help. Don't let others make you feel less than for asking for help.
Fear of losing your job. At some point it will happen if you don't work on getting better. Take that first step towards getting better so you can support yourself and your family.
