Welcome, I could not find your other post (2 many 'observations' to search for I guess), so I'll treat this as your first. I'm gladdened you have reached a reasonably stable, though not ideal, state. There is still hope for improvement, I did not come across the medication that really suited me for long time.
Many people wear a mask, which may or may not be a good thing depending on circumstances, but are really affected by stigma. It is not even the stigma of others, but self-stigma too.
Typically I felt I was not one of 'those' people and held off getting treatment until far too much time had passed, job lost, family in bad shape and all else you can imagine.
Things are improving, organizations such as Beyond Blue do an enormous amount, from this huge website full of facts and help thought to media, even down to adverts on trams.
The Speakers Bureau tries to send the message to local communities as well as companies.
It is not just Beyond Blue, many other organizations do similar, some being specialized like 'Mates in Construction", particularly tailored for men in that industry.
I guess it will take active participation by many before all stigma goes, have you considered volunteering in the mental health field? There are all sorts of opportunities depending on your preferences. Beyond Blue's BlueVoices might be a starting point.
It took me a while before I was able to say to others my condition, but I've found the vast majority exercise consideration and do not think less of me. As for the ones that do, I'm sure they are full of prejudice against other matters too.
