Approximately 61.5 million Americans suffer from mental illness in a year, yet a shocking 41% do not seek the treatment they need due to stigma? With these numbers, it is safe to assume almost everyone in America knows or is someone who is or has experienced mental illness.

Philosophy’s Hope & Grace Initiative began its partnership with Each Mind Matters: California’s Mental Health Movement and The National Alliance on Mental Illness on May 1st, 2015 to bring awareness to mental illness and provide action-oriented programs available to the public. Together, philosophy and these organizations launched the stigmafree campaign in order to address stigma associated with mental health.

It is important to remember that we are never alone. The stigmafree campaign is a positive way to support each other and rid the negative stigma surrounding mental illness, so that people in need can seek the help they deserve without feeling any shame.

Help us support the movement by declaring yourself stigma-free on social media using the hashtag #iamstigmafree and #millionslikeme to raise awareness for the stigmafree campaign. We urge you to educate your friends, family, co-workers, and peers by sharing facts about mental health and ask friends to join the moment and take the pledge too!
