Jess Jelinek, Annie Bryan, and I are joining forces as we prepare for the Chi-Town Half Marathon on Saturday, April 6th.
As we're gearing up for the race, we've decided to have a little more fun with this by raising money for No Stigmas. No Stigmas is a peer-to-peer community who comes together to eliminate the stigmas around mental health and support the creation of peer support mental health communities everywhere.
1 in every 5 adults in America suffer from mental illness and you can help give those with illness the support they need.
From your contribution to No Stigmas, your support will help:
- People who are uninsured or have limited access to traditional healthcare
- Those living with a mental illness, substance use disorder, post-traumatic stress, self-harm and anxiety disorders
- Caretakers of those in need of support
- The LGBT, military and immigrant communities
The most common complaint is, “I’ve searched for hours/days and can’t find the information I need to help myself/a loved one.” We are so grateful for your consideration to donate to No Stigmas to help grow this peer support network.
