Breaking Stigma One Conversation at a Time
"Mental Health Matters: It's Time to Talk" is a Mental Health Association campaign, originating from the Mental Health Association in Central Carolinas, Inc., designed to encourage open dialogue about mental health and reduce stigma.
3 Key Messages
- Mental disorders are common in the U.S. In a given year, 1 in 4 adults may have one or more diagnosable mental disorders (National Institute of Mental Health).
- Mental health is essential to overall health; prevention works, treatment is effective, and recovery is possible.
- Two-thirds of individuals never seek treatment due to stigma. Stigma does not need to be a barrier to service. MHA can connect people with services and support.
