Mental illness touches everyone. More than 1 in 4 adults suffers from a diagnosable mental disorder in a given year. It may be your father, your best friend, your daughter, your spouse, your boss, your neighbor, your colleague, or your classmate. One of the greatest barriers to treatment is shame as a result of the stigma surrounding addiction and other behavioral health issues. It is time to break that stigma. #GivingTuesday is an opportunity for you to show your support to the many who are too afraid to admit they have a problem and need help. Send us your words of encouragement through the below form or by using the hashtag #SendHope on Twitter. For every submission we receive, $2 will be donated towards treatment scholarships*. Not only will we tweet them, but we will also post your messages on our media center.** Your words can help save lives.
*Up to $500.
**Caron will re-post all appropriate messages without attributing them so as to not disclose anyone’s personal information.
