Understanding Invisible Disabilities and Breaking Barriers: TURSA’s Supportive Approach
Invisible disabilities significantly impact an individual’s daily life but may not be immediately apparent to others. These conditions among others include chronic pain, mental health disorders, and cognitive impairments. While these disabilities may not have visible physical manifestations, their effects are real and can create significant challenges for individuals in various aspects of their lives.
Barriers Presented by Invisible Disabilities
Living with invisible disabilities can present unique barriers that society does not always understand or accommodate. Some of these barriers include:
Misunderstanding and Stigma: Due to the lack of visible signs, individuals with invisible disabilities often face scepticism or disbelief from others, leading to misconceptions and social stigmatisation.
Limited Accessibility: Many public spaces and services may not be adequately equipped/trained to accommodate the needs of individuals with invisible disabilities, making it challenging to fully participate in various activities.
Workplace Challenges: Invisible disabilities can affect an individual’s ability to perform tasks, concentrate, or interact with colleagues, potentially leading to workplace discrimination or difficulties securing and maintaining employment.
Isolation: The hidden nature of these disabilities can lead to isolation and loneliness as individuals may struggle to connect with others who don’t understand their experiences.
