Stigmabusters

NAMI StigmaBusters is a network of dedicated advocates across the country and around the world who seek to fight inaccurate and hurtful representations of persons with mental illness.

The goal of StigmaBusters is to break down the barriers of ignorance, prejudice, and unfair discrimination by promoting education, understanding, and respect.

When you sign up to join StigmaBusters, NAMI will begin sending you email alerts whenever there is offensive language or offensive portrayals of persons with mental illness in the media (TV, radio, films, advertisements, magazines, and the press). The alerts will provide contact information for the offender with the hope that StigmaBusters around the nation will express their displeasure.

Numbers do count, so let your voice be heard!

StigmaBusters also sends letters of appreciation and commendation to the media for accurate portrayals of persons with a mental illness.

NAMI Mercer participates in a number of national NAMI programs, and encourages your support too!
