Check out June's Mental Health Minute - Stigma

Imagine if you had a heart condition and someone told you you could feel better if only you tried?

People suffering from mental illness hear this frequently. 

Mental illness is a physical illness that affects the brain just like a cardiac problem affects the heart.  It is this misunderstanding that prevents many people from seeking help when they need it – the stigma of mental illness.

Help us end the stigma of mental health by supporting friends and loved ones with caring, empathy and concern.  When in doubt, reach out, don’t wait.  It is ok to talk about your feelings, and if you know someone who is suffering, there are treatment options. 

One resource is the 24/7 Macomb County Crisis Line.  It is staffed with caring, supportive professionals who are ready to help you.  586-307-9100. Listen to the Mental Health Minute.

Action Alert - We Need Your Help

A new section is being proposed for Boilerplate 298. We believe this language threatens Michigan's public mental health system. Please click here to learn more and help.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month

Stigma against mental illness creates an environment of shame, fear and silence that prevents many people from seeking help and treatment. The perception of mental illness won’t change unless we act to change it.  But there’s good news. Stigma is 100 percent curable. Compassion, empathy and understanding are the antidote. Your voice can spread the cure.  Click here to learn more and take the CureStigma quiz.
