CHOOSING TO SPEAK OUT
Sometimes the choice will be to say nothing. Remember there are no absolute right or wrong options.
Sometimes speaking out does not need to be explicitly saying something. You can respond to stigma with your actions, such as wearing a lanyard to self-identify as a person living with dementia .
If considering to SPEAK OUT you may want to ask yourself:
Is this a teachable moment?
What will you gain by saying something?
What might you lose by saying something?
