This chart shows the percentage of American people who are definitely, or unwilling to have someone with a mental illness: move next door, spend an evening socializing, become friends, work closely, or marry into the family. I think these rates are extremely high, and are mainly affected by the stigma that makes people believe mental illness cannot be understood. We need to take a stand!

Surprisingly high numbers! I'd bet that many people already work with people who suffer from various mental illnesses and they don't even know it.

I definitely agree with that! Sometimes people fail to realize that mental illness can be something very unnoticeable.
