Founding Member

Erie County Department of Mental Health

It is with great pride in the work of the Coalition that I lend my voice in strong support of the work being done to alleviate stigma around mental illness. As human beings, we all are either personally affected or hold dear others who have struggles with their mental health. When we look at it as a physical condition with psychological symptoms, we realize we are all susceptible and can look at those affected with compassion and respect.
