Did you know that mental health stigma is highly associated with a lack of engagement in mental health services? And with 1 in 5 adult Americans experiencing mental illness each year (and only 43% getting treatment), we need to stomp out stigma.
In our latest episode, hosts Rachel and Jor-El talk all about it. They each offer up some everyday examples of how we all may unintentionally contribute to mental health stigma. Our hosts also talk about the role of influencers and how they can be much more helpful in fighting stigma by documenting their stories rather than trying to educate the masses as faux experts.
