Improve Negative Attitudes Towards Mentally Disabled Children
3A Hilda Lam
In this article, I am going to talk about public attitudes towards the mentally disabled. Firstly, there are over 75000 mentally disabled people in Hong Kong. Why is it a problem? Many people feel scared and embarrassed whey they see mentally disabled people. I am going to talk about some suggestions for the solutions.
I think the public should have more contacts and interactions with mentally disabled people. If they have more interactions and contacts with the mentally disabled people, they will not be scared.
Second, I think the public should realise how mentally disabled people feel. If the public realise how mentally disabled people feel, they will not discriminate them but play with them.
Finally, I hope the public can organize fundraising events to support the charities. I also hope the public not to discriminate mentally disabled people and can understand them.
