What are common conceptions of people with psychiatric history?

I did a Google search, but I couldn’t find any anecdotes.

    People assume you're 'crazy' and to never lower their guard around you. I liked one guy, decades ago, who talked about the stigma people had who had been in institutions. He said he had a piece of paper that said he was sane - unlike the majority of people in the world who don't!

    They can be unstable, violent, unintelligent, dangerous, lacking self-awareness/disregard for others and volatile.  Also, the belief they need to be separated from the general community, often require medication and will never lead a healthy, productive and happy life.
