What is a Stigma-Free Zone?
1 in 4 adults experience a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year, yet more than half will not seek treatment. Why? The main reasons cited are shame and fear of judgment from friends, family, and co-workers. In other words, the STIGMA associated with mental diseases – even though it’s a disease like any other. It is our goal to build a society where people are free of stigma and can get the help they need. We can build that society by banding together as a community, breaking down the walls, and showing others how they can do the same.
