I PLEDGE TO…

  • Provide a voice for those who can’t speak for themselves
  • Have the courage to speak up and challenge the stereotypes and attitudes about mental illness
  • Serve as an example in changing the way mental illness is viewed.
  • Recognize my own prejudices about mental illness and work toward changing my own thinking and behavior that maintain those prejudices.
  • Choose my words carefully when referencing those with a mental illness

According to the National Alliance on Mental Illness:

If you don’t know who to talk to and you feel like you want to hurt yourself call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline – 800-273-8255

Crazy.  Psycho. Mental.  Nuts.  These are just a few of the words used when talking about someone suffering from a mental illness.  Lunatic.  Madman.  Retard. Spastic.  These are just a few of the words that hurt.

The Stop the Stigma campaign encourages everyone to stop the use of such words and to end the negative thoughts associated with mental illness.  We are encouraging everyone to read and sign the pledge below.  Not only sign it but to live by these statements every day.
