Join us! Help Remove the Stigma of Mental Illness!

Everyone is welcome. Our next meeting is Tuesday, June 18, 2019 1:30-3:00pm

You can Help! Let’s stand up to stigma!
Raise your voices against stigma every day, in every way.

Please join us as we work to build a community where families and individuals living with a mental illness feel supported and have the opportunity to live up to their potential.

“Stigma causes people to feel ashamed for something that is out of their control. Worst of all, stigma prevents people from seeking the help they need. For a group of people who already carry such a heavy burden, stigma is an unacceptable addition to their pain. And while stigma has reduced in recent years, the pace of progress has not been quick enough.” (Quote:

The Removing Stigma Innovation Team was formed as a follow up to the Community Conversations held last fall, the first Innovation Team meetings were held in February. The removing Stigma Team meets the 3rd Tuesday of each month rotating between FirstLight in Mora and the Allina Outpatient Addiction Clinic in Cambridge.

You are welcome and encouraged to attend as many of these meetings as your schedule allows.

Community input is vital to ensuring the continued success of our work – we would be pleased to see you!
