Stigma Reduction Campaign
Community members can show their support and help reduce the stigma associated with discussing mental illness and mental wellbeing by purchasing and wearing a t-shirt and displaying graphics from our Let’s Taco ‘Bout It campaign on their social media channels.
Local coffee shops throughout the Corridor will also be placing stickers on their lids to encourage conversation.
