How Stigma Stunts Mental Health Care

Last week featured multiple worthy mental health causes: Mental Illness Awareness Week, World Mental Health Day and National Depression Screening Day.

The greatest barrier to achieving this is stigma.

Stigma is a societal problem we must face together. If we can work to collectively change our view of mental health conditions, we can begin to change the landscape where individuals cope. On NTSTLife, learn how stigma originates and hinders struggling individuals from seeking timely intervention or care altogether.
