Why is there stigma related to mental health in our society? 

For the longest period, there was not enough importance or recognition given to mental health due to insufficient knowledge, wrong facts and stereotypes about this. People thought you were ‘pagal’ i.e had gone mad, only because there were treatments still developing to be able to help individuals with mental illness. This idea, unfortunately, stuck around through generations. 

It is, however, not at all and should not be a stigmatised topic.
