The National Rehabilitation Association (NRA) is a nonpartisan organization and will never condone the use of disparaging language that is derogatory toward persons with disabilities. Any comments made by public officials or private citizens should be respectful toward others. The recent and highly visible use of “crazy” and “psycho” to describe another human being is both offensive and carries negative connotations toward people with disabilities including individuals with mental illness. The NRA strongly recommends that we use this unfortunate incident to enter into a healthy discourse on the topic of living with a disability.
