PART OF THE “BREAKING THE CODE OF SILENCE” SERIES
For people living with mental illness, the fear of stigma can have a devastating effect on their ability to live normal, healthy lives. That’s why I took the Bring Change 2 Mind pledge to stand up against the stigma of mental illness. Will you join me?
Bring Change 2 Mind is an organization dedicated to fighting the stigma of mental illness, and providing information and support to those living with mental illness.
By taking their pledge, you promise to learn about mental health issues, and to reach out to those who may be struggling with such issues. If you are living with a mental illness, you pledge to educate and manage your illness, and to communicate with others about your experiences.
Most importantly, anyone who takes the pledge is promising to stand up against intolerance and the perpetuation of stigma of any kind.
Take the Bring Change 2 Mind pledge to stand up against stigma today. Together we can change the way society views people with mental illness:
