Take Action

Unfortunately, there is still a stigma associated with mental illness. We need your help to fight the stigma. We are committed to efforts to support the elimination of ignorance, prejudice, and discrimination of persons with mental illnesses.

  • Protest stigma in the media, advertising and commercial products
  • Praise accurate depictions of mental illness that offer hope for recovery
  • Request a speaker from Community Support Services to present information about mental illness. Speakers are available to present to civic groups, churches, businesses, and other groups
  • Consider employing a person with mental illness through the agency’s Supportive Employment program
  • Contact local, state, and federal government officials to advocate for increased funding for behavioral health services
  • Educate yourself about mental illness and available treatment
