Mental disorders affect one in four of us! Despite this big number, persons with mental health conditions tend to hide their illness because of stigma and discrimination. With support and care people can better cope with mental disorders and preserve their well-being.
Societies and communities have a role to play in accepting people with mental health disorders and encouraging them to seek the support and care they might need.
The campaign seeks to normalize mental health and substance use services and diffuse the stigma surrounding disorders affecting an increasing number in our society.
