Mental Health Stigmatization

Our lives begin to end the day we become silent about things that matter.

-Martin Luther King Jr.

Have you experienced one of the following related to your mental health and/or substance and drug abuse?

  • Stigmatization: Negative and unfair attitudes and beliefs.

  • Discrimination: Unjust or prejudicial treatment.

  • Ostracism: Exclusion from a society or group.

Have you or a loved one refused treatment for one of these reasons?

  • Too expensive

  • Limited insurance

  • Don’t know where to go

  • Don’t want anyone to find out

  • Unaware of the benefits of mental wellness services

You deserve to live a fulfilled life, which includes taking care of your mental well being. We need to work together to recognize that mental health is NOT an illness, a disease or a badge of shame against a person, it is a natural aspect of your overall health to be mentally and physically well.
