Karl Shallowhorn Discusses The Importance of Breaking The Stigma of Mental Illness

1 in 5 young people lives with a mental health condition. If you're dealing with a mental health condition, let someone know. When we find someone that is willing to listen, sometimes we don't even need an answer.

We need to talk.

If you’re dealing with a mental health challenge, you are not alone. Approximately 1 in 5 Western New Yorkers are living with a mental health diagnosis, yet many of these people suffer in silence because of the discrimination that goes along with it. So, we’re starting a conversation to end the stigma surrounding mental illness. Join us as we share our stories, our struggles and our successes. When we talk about mental health, we help everyone find their voice.
