Fighting the Invisible: Breaking the Grip of Stigma on Our Community’s Mental Health

Thursday, January 31, 2013 at 10:45am to 12:00pm

Greylock Dining Hall, Makepeace Room 41 Whitman St, Williamstown, MA 01267

Fighting the Invisible: Breaking the Grip of Stigma on Our Community’s Mental HealthIs it really okay to feel sad? How does the Williams community/culture view mental health? This discussion will explore the difficulties of fighting invisible stigmas, particularly those surrounding mental health. Mental health and mental health disorders are just as stigmatized as any other typically thought of, but when someone’s health and well being is at risk of being smothered by stigma, it can prevent someone from getting the help they need. Part of Claiming Williams 2013. Intended for Williams students, faculty, and staff.
