Refuse to Be Silent

#EndTheStigma #StopTheStigma

More and more doctors, researchers, school programs, and the media are working to educate the public to overcome this unnecessary disgrace.

You Need to Do Your Part

Every time the topic of mental illness comes up in conversation or in public, one more person has the potential to be educated, and therefore the ability to let go of the stigma. As patients, it is equally important that we freely talk about it, without embarrassment, guilt or shame. This battle can be won, one person at a time, if we all do our parts.

Celebrities Speaking Out

Even celebrities are speaking out against the stigma, by opening up and telling the world about their own mental illnesses. They are admitting to having problems that, in the past, would have ended their careers. (Carley Cooper, International Bipolar Foundation)
