Our mission: ensure no one faces mental illness alone.
means every single person, of any age, anywhere in the world has access
to mental health resources they need to have better quality of life and
less risk of death by suicide. It's a huge task. And it's 100%
achievable. But we need your help.
Since 2007, NoStigmas has
brought together a community of nearly 10,000 advocates worldwide. It's a
community that fosters change on an individual level by standing up to
stigmas, educating about the warning signs and symptoms of a mental
health crisis and sharing hundreds of stories of hope and inspiration
with those who need help. But these numbers pale in comparison to the
fact that over 1 in 4 people live with a mental illness everyday. We
have big plans on how to reach each individual in 2013 and beyond, but
we need your help to further these programs.
In 2012, NoStigmas
became a Federally recognized 501(c)3 Public Charity, thanks to donors
like you and the legal services of Neal, Gerber & Eisenberg. Your
donations also funded Mental Health First Aid instructor training so we
can put more mental health advocates into our schools and workplaces.
Through our Community Outreach Program, we had the opportunity to speak
with hundreds of people at events and schools throughout the Midwest.
conjunction with mental health and educational professionals, NoStigmas
is developing a Mental Wellness Toolkit to provide free of charge to
educational professionals. The toolkit will include mental health
education resources and media targeted for school-age children.
NoStigmas is also producing a public-use PSA and documentary, focused on
natural mental wellness practices.
These initiatives, together with our
new NoStigmas Center online community forum and wellness directory,
are all part of how we plan to put mental health resources within
everyone's reach.Your support is crucial. A donation today will
help put mental health advocates into your community to ensure that
everyone receives the knowledge and care that they deserve. Please
give what you can to ensure no one faces mental illness alone. Thank
you for your generosity of time and spirit of giving. We wish each of
you health and happiness this season and into the New Year!
