Worldwide, stigmatization and discrimination against people who have a mental illness is an issue of public health concern. This is because most individuals who have mental illness are challenged twice; firstly, they are struggling with the symptoms & disabilities which are as a result of the disease and secondly, they are stereotyped and bigoted owing to misconception relating to mental illness (Corrigan &Watson, 2002). Individuals who have mental illness represent a significant proportion of the globe’s population (World Health Organization, 2010). It has been approximated that roughly a million people die from suicide annually and one out of four people globally experiences mental illness in their lifetime.
