Children must have good mental health to reach their full potential. Mentally healthy children reach developmental and emotional milestones, learn beneficial social skills, and have a positive healthy quality of life in home, school and in their communities.Stigma is a key barrier that prevents youth from seeking or continuing the mental health treatment they need. By reducing stigma, we can create an environment that offers hope and acceptance to those who currently suffer in silence.
Join us for this experience as we:
•understand stigma and the impact on individuals and communities;
•identify and overcome stigma in ourselves and our communities;
•help improve mental health outcomes for youth.
