We have joined Team "Stigma Busters" because we are inspired by the resilence of individuals and their families who are affected by a mental health condition. We are working to eliminate stigma and negative perceptions about mental health through our advocacy efforts. Please help support our team to help NAMI Vermont continue the important work in the commmunity.
Our values as an organization define who we are:
Empathy: We share common experiences that develop understanding, empathy, and compassion for one another.
Acceptance: We practice non-judgmental, unbiased acceptance.
Hope: We maintain hope that through treatment and support people can and do recover.
Resilience: We believe in the resilience and capacity of individuals to recover and maintain wellness.
Honesty: We believe honesty builds self-awareness and open-mindedness.
Self-Care: We encourage self-care as a means to cope with challenges and maintain well-being.
Empowerment: We support individuals and families rebuilding their lives; we promote personal responsibility and self-advocacy; and we provide education and training that empowers individuals to develop their potential.
Inclusion: We value and respect the contributions of each person toward a better understanding of the diversity of needs and capacity among us, and we affirm the importance of those contributions toward empowerment, resiliency, and recovery.
