Individuals with disabilities face stigmatizing language use that can be demeaning. It's important when choosing the words we use to not let a disability define a person, or allow them to be seen as unequal to individuals who are able-bodied. Pennsylvania Department of Human Services

Language is powerful — especially when talking about addiction, mental health, or disabilities. Stigmatizing language perpetuates negative perceptions, while "person-first" language focuses on the person, not the disorder.
Reducing stigma can help people living with a substance use disorder or behavioral health condition know that they are not alone, resources and help are available, and they are not limited or defined by a mental health condition or substance use disorder. Pennsylvania Department of Human Services
