Stigma Free

Stigma Free - What Does It Mean?

The fear of stigma too often keeps people who are struggling with mental illness from seeking the help they need.  Towns across New Jersey are standing up to the shame associated with mental illness by declaring themselves "stigma-free."

The Morris County Stigma-Free Communities Initiative is a county-wide program which aims to eradicate the stigma associated with mental illness and substance use disorders.

We are dedicated to raising awareness of these illnesses by creating an environment where affected individuals are supported in their efforts to achieve wellness and recovery.
