Mental Health & Medical Conditions
References to mental conditions, even if in a light-hearted context, may cause offence and should be avoided. Past examples include references to being “schizophrenic”, a “moron” and a “cretin”.
References to serious medical conditions, addictions and physical disabilities, even if in a light-hearted way, are also generally unacceptable. Past examples include alcoholism, obesity and lack of limbs.
This does not apply to campaigns on health and related social issues.
