SAY NO TO THE STIGMA SURROUNDING MENTAL ILLNESS!

Nearly 60% of adults with a mental illness didn't receive mental health services in the previous year. Let’s raise awareness and cultivate a community that supports recovery and social inclusion for those struggling with mental illness.

Speak Up

Talk openly of your own experience of mental illness. The more hidden mental illness remains, the more people continue to believe that it is shameful and needs to be concealed. Let's create a community that supports recovery and social inclusion.

START A CONVERSATION

It’s time to break the silence and open up. Join our cause and help end the stigma, one conversation at a time. Start talking about mental health!

Whether it’s you, or a friend or loved one who is struggling with mental illness, no one should feel ashamed to seek help or support. So why does everyone seem to avoid the topic of mental health? Maybe they simply don’t know what to say.

Here are some great resources to help you start a conversation about mental health:

TAKE ACTION

Help us cultivate a community that supports recovery and social inclusion and reduces discrimination.

Here’s how you can help fight the stigma surrounding mental illness:

  • Learn and share the facts about mental health and illness
  • Get to know people with personal experiences of mental illness
  • Speak up in protest when friends, family, colleagues or the media display false beliefs and negative stereotypes
  • Offer the same support to people when they are physically or mentally unwell
  • Don’t label or judge people with a mental illness, treat them with respect and dignity as you would anyone else
  • Don’t discriminate when it comes to participation, housing and employment
  • Talk openly of your own experience of mental illness. The more hidden mental illness remains, the more people continue to believe that it is shameful and needs to be concealed.
