Mental Illness Stigma Reduction Coalition

 

Mental Illness Help: Reducing Stigma and Promoting Recovery

1 in 5 people will deal with a serious mental illness in their lifetime. 

How can we help our community reduce the stigma of mental illness and connect services and support with those who need it most? We begin with open dialogue.

Mental health is important in every stage of life. Sufferers of mental illness face stigma which can lead to: inadequate access to mental health services, fear, mistrust, and violence against people living with mental illness and their families. 

Milwaukee Public Library is proud to join a coalition of Milwaukee area organizations in an effort to combat the stigma of mental illness, particularly in Milwaukee's African American community: the Mental Illness Stigma Reduction/Recovery Coalition, organized by the Alpha Kappa Alpha Sorority, Incorporated and the National Alliance on Mental Illness (NAMI).
