*A diagnosis does not define who a person is. It is simply a description of a cluster of behaviours and symptoms, but does not explain how they came to be. It is a shorthand method of communication among clinicians and should never be used as an indication of an individual’s worth.
* People are treated with respect and dignity, regardless of race, ethnicity, national origin, ancestry, color, religion and religious belief, gender, sexual orientation, gender identity or expression, physical or mental disability, medical condition (including pregnancy), age, marital status, family status citizenship status, political affiliation, or on any other basis or characteristic. We expect reciprocal treatment be afforded to me, my companions and business partners.
