Stigma & Discrimination

Fighting the Stigma of Mental Illness

Although a large number of people have reported symptoms of anxiety or depression disorder during the COVID-19 public health emergency, negative attitudes about mental health conditions remain common.

Words Can Hurt

For too long, there has been a stigma surrounding mental health and addiction. Removing the stigma can help people talk about their feelings, issues and experiences, and get the treatment they need.

Asking for help can be challenging, but you are not alone.

Call Horizon Behavioral Health to help you navigate the support you need at 1-800-626-2212 (TTY 711), 24/7.

If you are having an urgent mental health crisis, call 911 or visit an emergency room as soon as possible.
