Mental Health Support

“I found that with depression, one of the most important things you can realize is that you’re not alone. You’re not the first to go through it, you’re not gonna be the last to go through it.”
 — Dwayne “The Rock” Johnson

S.T.O.P. Mental Health Stigma

(unfairly shaming others for things they been through or are dealing with)
Use the STOP criteria to recognize attitudes and actions that support stigma.

If you hear or see language that promotes:
    S- Stereotypes about people with mental health conditions
    T-Trivializes or belittles people with mental health conditions 
    O-Offends people with mental health conditions
    P-Patronizes people with mental health conditions
..then SPEAK UP against stigma!
What else can you do to help reduce mental health stigmas?

  • Educate yourself and others
  • Beware of your own attitudes and behaviors
  • Talk about mental health 
  • Choose your words carefully
  • Choose compassion over shame
  • Offer support and encouragement
  • Encourage equality between physical and mental health
