Social isolation, poor housing, unemployment and poverty are all linked to mental ill health. So stigma and discrimination can trap people in a cycle of illness.

Regular humans have a hard time comprehending the physiological, sociological, and anthropological mindset of these killers. As culture humans have overlooked serial killers, grouping them with social rejects and the mentally insane. This is perhaps why they try to attract as much attention as possible.

One of the most common myths is that because the individual raping is a domestic partner it is then not considered rape. This is false and the need to inform or educate the public is needed in order to get this news out.

Many different models of disability have been studied over the last few years. The ones that are really shown or seen are the medical and social models. The Medical Model sees disability as being a personal problem while the social model sees disability as the defect in the society. While it isn’t hard to point out from which model a movie operates, what viewers don’t realize is that there are also different stereotypes that are put on the disabled people in the movie. These stereotypes are making them seem like a genius, a beast, that they can’t hold sexual relationships, and the butt of a joke.
