Sacramento County Anti-Stigma Project Offers Support for LGBTQ Community Members with Mental Illness Who are Afraid to Seek Help


It is estimated that one in five people live with mental illness in the world. But many do not seek out support or treatment because they worry they will lose their jobs, their friends or family, or be isolated because of the stigma associated with having a mental illness.

Sacramento County’s “Mental Illness: It’s not always what you think” project reaches out to LGBTQ family members, friends, and individuals of all ages to let them know that they are not alone. Support and resources are available in many languages online. All anyone needs to do is visit the website www.stopstigmasacramento.org to learn more about mental illness, mental health stigma and organizations and resources in the community that can provide support or information.
