Have you ever tried solving a puzzle? It can be frustrating yet satisfying when you finally put all the pieces together. In today's lesson, we're going to discuss the puzzle of discrimination - the pieces that make up this social issue, the impact it has on health, and the solutions we can put in place to solve it.

Defining Discrimination

Let's start by defining what discrimination means. Discrimination is the unjust treatment of individuals based on their personal characteristics such as age, race, gender, sexual orientation, religion, or disability, to name a few. Discrimination can manifest in different forms like verbal abuse, social exclusion, and even physical harm.

The Impact of Discrimination on Health

Discrimination can have negative consequences on an individual's physical and mental health. Being discriminated against can increase the risk of developing stress-related illnesses, chronic diseases, and mental health conditions like depression and anxiety. Discrimination can also lead to poor health behaviors, including substance abuse and unhealthy eating habits.

Addressing Discrimination

To address discrimination, we need to recognize it when it happens and speak up against it. Creating a welcoming and inclusive environment for everyone is crucial in addressing discrimination. It starts with small steps like being mindful of our words and actions and promoting education and awareness on diversity and inclusion.


Just like solving a puzzle, addressing discrimination requires putting the pieces together and taking action. By recognizing the impact of discrimination on health and promoting inclusivity, we can work towards a healthier and more just community.
