    This chapter argues that an understanding of social identity processes is critical to understand when and how stigma affects health. This chapter presents a social identity analysis of the relationship between stigma and health and starts from the premise that it is particularly difficult for individuals who belong to stigmatized groups to derive a positive identity from their social group. Social stigma is the extreme disapproval of (or discontent with) a person or group on socially characteristic grounds that are perceived, and serve to distinguish them, from other members of a society. Stigma may then be affixed to such a person, by the greater society, who differs from their cultural norms.. Social stigma can result from the perception of mental illness, physical disabilities.

    Book, "The Presentation of Self in Everyday Life" and his book, "Stigma:Notes on the Management of Spoiled Identity," and "Asylums" Prosocial Bond a bond between the individual and the social group that strengthens the likelihood of conformity. The meaning attached by the largest group of society is that stigma includes a negative rating. This "attribute" is understood by all to determine its bearer is a criminal, or otherwise worthy social isolation, shame and punishment. Thus, people under stigma are not just different from others; society deems that their deviation should be.

      It is shown that a criminal conviction carries an additional social stigma depending on the legal standard, the population variance, and the beliefs of the society. This happens in a separating equilibrium where the best strategy of each type confirms the beliefs of the rest of society with regards to the set of individual violators.   Regardless of whether alcohol and sexual activities have a negative social stigma within a certain social group, peer group, or subculture, these activities are inevitably associated with some risk. Physical, emotional, and social well-being are put on the line .
