Stand Up For Mental Health Campaign
Our staff at Richmond Hill Psychology Center is delighted to support "Stand Up for Mental Health" campaign by HealthyPlace.com American Mental Health Channel. The goal of this campaign is to eliminate the stigma of mental disorder and let people know that open talk about mental health is beneficial for everyone. Having a mental illness is not somebody's choice, and people shouldn't be discriminated for being ill. We hope that eliminating the stigma (incl. self-stigma) will cause patients to seek therapy sooner than later and this will greatly improve their chances of recovery.
