Groups are seen as deviant, dangerous, or diseased
Educating the public about what it means to live with a mental illness
Outside of social order you couldn’t control the social stigma
People who had mental illnesses couldn’t work – seen as burden on society
Loss of an arm -> seen as disabled, because in a capitalist society

Used to describe opposition by residents to a proposal for a new
development close to them
This can include infrastructure changes, retail development or the inclusion
of certain social groups that are stigmatized
