Two days ago I wrote about Ben Carson’s use of the word, schizophrenic, on my Psych Central Blog.

It turns out the language and stigma are on the mind of many writers.  Check out this article from the Washington Post. It is about Trump’s use of words like “wacko” and “nut job.”

And then there is this article from Slate about the abuse of the word, schizophrenic, on Twitter.

All I can say is it is about time the media started calling out people for stigmatizing mental illnesses.

Normally, I call the media out for insinuating that we are criminals (especially mass shooters) this is certainly the first time on my page that you will see the words, “Go media, go!”
