Mental Health: #StopTheStigma

The stigma surrounding mental health makes one third of Americans embarrassed to even talk about it. We at Jumo Health have pledged to #StopTheStigma. In part 3 of our mental health awareness month feature, we learn how Gianna got involved in an organization that is dedicated to this cause – Bring Change to Mind. We speak with program manager, Leanne Loughran, about what they are doing to end stigma and discrimination surrounding mental health. To learn how to start a chapter at your school, go to www.bringchange2mind.org or email highschool@bringchange2mind.org.
