Stop Stigma Sacramento
The Mental Illness: It’s not always what you think project was initiated by Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Behavioral Health Services to:
-Reduce stigma and discrimination
-Promote mental health and wellness
-Inspire hope for people and families living with mental illness
Stop Stigma Sacramento is one of the many projects here working to support those with mental illnesses. These are all over the county—on billboards, community boards, and gas pumps.

1 in 10 people have mental illness, so anyone who thinks this is a rare thing, please realize that pretty much one of your friends or family members has one, maybe even you do. It took a long time to realize i had mental illnesses, because they are so stigmatized you don’t want to believe it.
