        http://www.TransformingStigma.Com “Stigma starts with shame. Shame leads to silence.”, says Mike Veny. In this video, mental health speaker Mike Veny talks about the why and how to keep the subject of mental health in your every conversations. This is critical to transforming the silence that accompanies mental health stigma. So how do you go about starting a conversation around the subject of mental health? Mike Veny tried an experiment for an entire year. He decided to go around and introduce himself to everyone and let them know that he was mentally ill, before anything else. To his surprise, not a single person showed fear, concern, or ran away from him. In fact, he developed deeper relationships, got hired for more work, and hit on by more women than ever before. Here are 3 simple tips for creating your own conversation starters and questions. 1. Accept that these conversations will be uncomfortable. You don't have to be an expert to talk about it because you are simply talking about your own lived experience. The only way that this will get easier is to start doing. 2. Read articles on healthy, appropriate, respectful, and “people first” vocabulary. Using “people first” vocabulary simply means that when you talk about a person, put the person before the mental health challenge in your sentences. For example, avoid saying "the mentally ill". Instead say, "people who live with a mental illness." 3. Take the lead by asking others who are struggling how you can support them and LISTEN! When someone you know is is mentally ill, the whole process can be CONFUSING! Keep in mind that people who struggle aren't always looking for answers or to vent. Most of the time they are looking for a warm heart and a generous ear. Even if you don’t understand what someone is struggling with, do your best to listen with love, from their perspective, and you will truly help them. Learn more at http://www.TransformingStigma.Com.

              Ian Robertson was mis-diagnosed with epilepsy as a young boy and given a drug to control his alleged seizures. These episodes of silence and introspection were nothing more than that, but psychoanalysts in the early 1970's New Zealand thought they knew better. Side affects of this particular drug were not widely reported for over two decades. Ian suffered 20years of self harm, suicide attempts and incarceration in a range of mental institutions and prisons in New Zealand and Australia. Now, battling terminal cancer, Ian has asked that his story be told so that other young people don't become victims of a mental health system that takes control over people and creates life-long harm in the lives of patients in their care.
