Stigma, discrimination against mentally ill are common

Stigma, discrimination against mentally ill are common. If mental illness is a disease; why should these people be scorned? If this is such a problem that needs fixing- as it does. Why does Medicaid and Medicare only cater those who were diagnosed at birth and not those who developed such illness? Mental illness or treating mental illness in America is a business that keeps the pharmaceutical companies lights on.
