#Stigma180 is the name of an anti-stigma initiative aimed at reversing the stigma surrounding mental health – “doing a 180.” You’ll see the hashtag #Stigma180 used to tie different elements of the campaign together across social media, buildings, and school and community events.
#Stigma180 was created by Specialized Services staff with the following goals in mind:
- to provide accurate information and resources about mental health
- to increase awareness, understanding, sensitivity, and responsiveness to mental health in our schools and community
- to engage members of the district and community in a dialogue and conversation about mental well-being and overall health.
