Negative stereotypes, labels and fear harm the 1 in 5 American adults affected by mental health conditions and substance use concerns, and may prevent them from seeking help. You can make a difference! Learn the facts and use respectful language when talking about mental health and struggles with substance use. Together, we can end the stigma.
Mental health and substance use disorders are every bit as important – and treatable – as physical health. Never be ashamed to speak up and seek support. If you or a loved one needs help, reach out and talk to a professional today. Opening up and talking about your concerns is the first step to feeling better.
