While Acknowledging Discrimination, Americans Have “Mixed Feelings” About Individuals with Mental Health Conditions

A new poll by the Kaiser Family Foundation reports that, of 1,209 Americans polled, 76 percent acknowledge that individuals with mental health conditions experience prejudice and discrimination. At the same time, according to Kaiser Health News, the poll found that “66 percent of parents said they would be ‘very’ or ‘somewhat’ uncomfortable if a person with a serious mental illness worked in their child’s school. Forty-seven percent said they would be uncomfortable living next door to someone with a serious mental illness, and 41 percent said they were uncomfortable working with someone who has a serious mental illness.”
