How do we end the stigma?

African Americans and Hispanic Americans used mental health services at about half the rate of whites in the past year, and Asian Americans at about one-third the rate. "We need to have more public discourse to dispel the myths about what mental health problems are and are not" states Dr. Joanne Barron Co-Founder of Trauma and Beyond.

Another step in ending the stigma is implementing reduction tactics and sharing knowledge and support with others. Group sessions with staff and patients on the theme; Friday, May 17 - Interactive session with female inmates of Her Majesty's Prision; Sunday, May 18 - Church service highlighting the spiritual perspective of Body Image in relation to Mental Health.

- Half of all lifetime mental health conditions begin by age 14 and 75 percent by age 24, but early intervention programs can help.

For the 68th year, the association have invited communities, schools and workplaces to rally around Mental Health Week. Mental Health First Aid (mentalhealthfirstaid.org) is an eight-hour course that teaches how to help someone who may be experiencing a mental health or substance-use challenge. Mental health includes our emotional, psychological, and social well-being.
