Stop the Stigma

Stop the Stigma

The Stop the Stigma campaign was developed and implemented by North Kansas City students to reduce the stigma of mental health. Every day of the week was used to raise awareness and reduce stigma on a different mental health illness, as resources were provided if students found they were struggling in that area. The school was encouraged to wear the colors of each awareness day, as well as wear the ribbons that represented the mental health illness. Wristbands that said β€œStop the Stigma” were given to students. Other items such as stress balls and posters were distributed to help engage students and the community. The campaign is on its second year and will roll out again fall of 2017.
