Does anyone else get annoyed with the fact that everything nowadays has a label on it from clothes to health conditions. I am not saying labels in MH dont have their place because of course they do but it seems that there is a perceived "norm" in society determined by things like culture, and if you remotely step out of the norm then there is something wrong with you and you need to be categorised and put in a box. Reminds me of that song "little boxes".
I am just as guilty of doing this as anyone when making a diagnosis at work and also in my own life too. Plus I am guilty of have perceived notions of what a label means without them necessarily being right.
I wonder what would happen if we were a bit less hung up about pigeon holing people in and effort to understand them and instead too them more on face value.
Probably wouldn't work tho lol
Hope you are all well

I think that many people become more mentally ill because of this. They search for a label for what is often just a personality trait or a temporary condition. Once they have the label they start to exhibit more symptoms of that condition and then move on to another.
There are many examples of people doing similar things in various topics on this site.
I'm not arguing, I'm simply explaining why I'm right.
