NAMI StigmaBusters is a network of dedicated advocates across the country and around the world who seek to fight inaccurate and hurtful representations of mental illness.
Whether these images are found in TV, film, print, or other media, StigmaBusters speak out and challenge stereotypes. They seek to educate society about the reality of mental illness and the courageous struggles faced by consumers and families every day. StigmaBusters' goal is to break down the barriers of ignorance, prejudice, or unfair discrimination by promoting education, understanding, and respect.
Each month, close to 20,000 advocates receive a NAMI StigmaBusters
Alert, and it is read by countless others around the world online. From
the Alert individuals are given contact information to call, write, or
email individuals to congratulate them on accurate portrayals of mental
illness or to provide additional education addressing negative
stereotypes and connotations.
