"Dementia and stigma"

About: Southern Health NHS Foundation Trust / Older people's mental health

(as the patient),

I do not like the term "Mental Health". It is a stigma.

I would rather have the term "Memory Matters Sufficiency" and a more gentle way to describe the damming disease.

Thank you for taking the time to send us this comment.

It will be passed onto the relevant staff in the Trust to make them aware of how people's feelings can be affected by the way their illness is referred to.
