Remove the Stigma of Mental Health

Word on the Street Issue 23, July 2022

By Stephanie VanBuskirk

Let’s stop the stigma surrounding mental health.

As someone who deals with my mental health on a daily basis I want you to know YOU ARE NOT ALONE.                 

Look beyond the diagnosis.

I am trying to advocate for those who can’t speak up or don’t have a voice.

Let’s not be afraid to speak up. Let’s drop the label of mental health.

If you need help just ask. Call your mental health provider, counselor or a hotline. Remember you are just as important as anyone else.

All you have to do is ask.

Help is waiting and ready to listen 24/7
