MENTAL ILLNESS EDUCATION

Stigma and discrimination against mental illness often prevent of delay people from seeking mental health services. The "Each Mind Matters" campaign provides information to children ages 9-13 through the "Walk in Our Shoes" program, teens and young adults through www.ReachOutHere.com, and adults through "A New State of Mind" documentary and community dialogues.
