The Erie County Anti Stigma Coalition was formed to start a conversation about mental health. By sharing stories and discussing the resources available, it aims to address the discrimination facing those with mental health concerns.

‘Almost everyone has experienced their own or loved ones’ mental health challenges, yet people struggling to maintain positive mental health often feel they are alone in this struggle. Acknowledging that we aren’t alone in these challenges encourages and allows for more open dialogue, confronting negative stereotypes, and enhancing services and support structures so people receive the help they need, when they need it.’
