NAMI’s StigmaFree campaign is a nationwide effort to end stigma and create hope for those affected by mental illness. Through powerful words and actions, we can shift the social and systemic barriers for those living with mental health conditions.
One in five Americans is affected by mental health conditions. Stigma is toxic to their mental health because it creates an environment of shame, fear, and silence that prevents many people from seeking help and treatment. The perception of mental illness won’t change unless we act to change it.
Stigma is 100% curable. Compassion, empathy, and understanding are the antidotes. Your voice can spread the cure. Together we can #CureStigma. Find out more with NAMI’s quiz, then commit to end stigma by taking the pledge.
