Stop stigma by starting the conversation.

We are currently running two campaigns to reduce mental health stigma in our community: Spokesimals Midwest and WhatMakesUs. This work is designed to engage the public in mental health conversations and provide a space for individuals to tell their own stories. 

Help us spread the word about these efforts by using the content below to share this initiative.
