The social construction of disability is the idea that society and its institutions have power it constructs disability around social expectations of health (Freidson, 1970). We construct our social environments and the way we understand and interact with people by the words we use and the actions we take in social situations. This idea is what causes disabilities to be overlooked or not thought of as serious enough for certain benefits or needed services.
In the Parker video Stephanie mentioned being depressed and suicidal and has even tried to discuss these things with her family but they do not care to listen or discuss it. Mental health is a disability, however, people in society do exactly what Stephanie’s family did, not care to address it or take it seriously. Disability is socially constructed by failure to give people the amount and kind of help they need to participate fully in all major aspects of life in society (Wendell, 2013). Stephanie is not only dealing with depression and bipolar disorder, but she is also taking care of her mother full time. She mentioned feeling smothered because her mother is always there, and they always argue, her disabilities affect this even more because she is does not have a hold on how to cope with the stress she is feeling. She is also taking a lot of medicine which can affect her ability to fully function. Her place and experience in society has always been affected, from getting shut out by her parents regarding how she was feeling, to now battling with her own disabilities while taking care of her mother. It has been proven to be detrimental for her due to being hospitalized multiple times from the overwhelming stress.
