Take Action This Mental Illness Awareness Week


One of the main reasons stigma of mental illness continues to thrive is because of the lack of information. People continue to believe myths like depression can go away with hard work and positive thinking, that people living with schizophrenia are violent and dangerous, that medications are not helpful and mental illness is something to be feared. None of these beliefs are true. The only way to end these myths are to get information from resources. You can find a wide range of resources on the SSO website and from the sources below.
