Stand Up and Be Heard

Mental Illness affects one if every five people.  You probably know many people who are living with a mental health condition right now.  And yet for many it is a silent struggle.  And the less mental health is understood, the more stigma takes root.  When individuals and families share their stories, they help reduce stigma, offer hope that recovery is possible, and show people they are not alone.
