Mentalism is a form of discrimination and oppression against people who have, or who are labeled as having, a mental disorder (mental illness). Like other "isms" such as sexism and racism, it is characterized by complex social inequalities in power. It can result in blatant mistreatment or multiple, small insults and indignities. The negative attitudes and terms may be internalized. Terms with a similar meaning that are sometimes used are "psychophobia" and "sanism".
