The primary reason individuals fail to seek the help they need is due to the stigma associated with the disease of mental illness.
The main reasons cited are shame and fear of judgment from friends, family and co-workers. Such judgment is often rooted in a lack of knowledge or training.
It is our goal to disseminate information and foster a stigma-free environment where people are free from judgment and can get the help they need to recover from the disease.
