Discrimination is unconstitutional and is very hurtful to people who are discriminated against. My daughter constantly felt she was being discriminated against because of her mental illness. In today’s society, it is still quite common for people with mental illness to be discriminated against, I have personally seen this in action. Many people avoid mentioning they have a mental illness because they fear employers will judge them, and not hire them. My daughter is very sensitive to being treated differently just because she has a mental illness: It hurts her self-esteem.
