SAY IT FORWARD
October 2nd – 8th
Educate & Inspire
When it comes to mental health conditions, silence is not golden. Silence breeds stigma, and stigma hurts. Most mental illness begins in adolescence, yet it can take years for individuals to seek treatment. Stigma prevents people from seeking life-saving treatment and support.
International Bipolar Foundation (IBPF) hopes that you will join forces with us to educate and inspire people to learn the facts and talk about mental illness, so that individuals won’t be afraid to seek the help they need.
The number of people we are trying to reach. Please help.
The concept “pay it forward” means to perform a selfless good deed for another, and “Say It Forward” does the same thing by educating and speaking out against stigma.
