StigmaFree On Campus
Everyday NAMI fights misconceptions and stereotypes about mental health conditions. Stigmafree is our movement to end the stigma associated with mental illness.
The age of many college students is a crucial time when it comes to mental health. Most people who live with mental illness are diagnosed by the time they turn 24, over half of all students living with mental illness will drop out of school and suicide is the second-leading cause of death for college students.
As part of our StigmaFree campaign, we are trying to encourage college campuses around the country to help us build our movement and change lives for the better.
