Stigma

Changing negative attitudes and myths about disability

Growing Good Self Esteem star
Living with a disability and having a good self image together can be difficult, but there are things we can do for ourselves and one another to boost good self esteem.

People First Language star
People first language speaks to the personhood of an individual with a disability first and foremost. We´re people first and our disability is one of many qualities that partially define us as human beings, like eye and hair color, height, weight and other qualities.

Stress or Mental Illness? star
Is it simply stress or a sign of mental illness? Either way, there's no shame in dealing with your stress in more creative or traditional medical ways. Seek help if you or a loved one may have a mental illness.

The Assumptions of DisAbilities star
What do disability or the needs for accommodations really look like anyway? Disability, too, just as any other culture or ethnicity, is a melting pot of abilities and challenges, with and without tell-tale signs. Let's stop making assumptions.

What Not To Say About Hidden Disabilities star
When you have a disability that can be seen, such as being in a wheelchair, on crutches, wearing hearing aids or using an assistance animal, it's easy to see

What We Don't See star
Most disabilities, about 80%, fall into a category commonly called Invisible Disabilities. They are not easily seen or recognized, are usually misunderstood and often disregarded.

Womanhood with a Disability star
There are many negative and unhealthy stereotypes about women with disabilities floating around, about our physical and intellectual worth, our body image and their viability as partners and mothers. All women with disabilities are capable of living and thriving in the world.
