Vendor Spotlight | Stand Against Stigma
Changing minds about mental illness.
About one in four people will struggle with a mental illness every year, and about 40 people in Shasta County die by suicide every year. Because of shame and discrimination associated with mental health problems, many people don't seek the help they need.
The Brave Faces Portrait Gallery and True Colors Art Gallery use true stories of hope and recovery to fight stigma by improving our understanding of mental illness and suicide.
