How to use "Undesirably" in context?

Undesirable is an understatement for people who are diagnosed with a mental illness. The DSM-5 defines mental illness as "a diagnosable mental disorder, such as major depression, generalized anxiety disorder, panic disorder, or social phobia." The problem can be even greater for people who do not conform to society's mold of what is considered beautiful or desirable.

When people see a person with a mental illness, they may believe that the person is unruly and not in control of himself or herself. This can lead to discrimination or social isolation. In some cases, people with mental illnesses have been forced to live in unstable or dangerous homes.
