Being an ally to people with mental health conditions
Treating each person as an individual and not as diagnosis
Understanding that everyone is different and needs help in different ways
Speaking up when I see other being mistreated or stigmatized because of their mental health
You can start now by sharing your StigmaFree status on social media. Try posting these messages below:
I’m inspired to build better lives for those affected by mental illness. I’m #StigmaFree313. Are you?
Mental illness doesn’t discriminate based on race, gender, identity or age. Be #StigmaFree313!
Did you know 1 in 5 adults in the U.S. has a mental health condition? Support NAMI’s work
With time and your help, mental illness will be empathized and understood rather than stigmatized and masked in silence. The societal perception of mental illness won’t change if we don’t take action to change it.
Together we can make Detroit #StigmaFree313!
