Hello Recovery Friends and Welcome All!
Since May has about a week left of the month, I wanted to share a special post, courtesy of all the good friends at NAMI, The National Alliance on Mental Illness. They have a campaign going on to help stamp out STIGMA in this country, and for those of us who have mental illness. So here is more information about it, and how you can help us in this fight!! Stigma is still a very big problem in America, and abroad. So it’s time to talk about it and shatter STIGMA together! Thanks.
