Welcome to Stigma Fighters: a mental health non-profit organization dedicated to helping real people living with mental illness.
In February 2014 CEO and Founder Sarah Fader wrote an article for The Huffington Post about living with panic disorder and depression. She wrote it because she wanted to show the world that there are people living with mental illness who are not just homeless or institutionalized. There are those of us who are living within the confines of society.
There are teachers, doctors, lawyers, psychologists, actors, writers all living with mental illness. These are the stories that need to be told; the people who seem to be “regular” or “normal” people but are actually hiding a big secret. They are living with an invisible illness. They are struggling to function like the rest of society.
It is Stigma Fighters’ mission to raise awareness for people who are seemingly “normal” but actually fighting hard to survive.
If you are living with mental illness and you want to share your story, please fill in the form HERE. We look forward to fighting the stigma of mental illness one story at a time.
