Break the Barrier is about reducing stigma.
As professionals working with people who suffer with mental health and addictions issues, we know the road to recovery starts with support, from family members, friends, peers and co-workers.
That’s why it’s crucial we all do more to educate the public about stigma and how damaging it can be.
One way we can do that is to share our stories about our personal experiences with mental health and addictions. By doing this, we can offer hope, encouragement and support to others who are dealing with mental health and addictions issues, and to their families and friends who may be trying to help but don’t know how to where to start.
When more people share stories of recovery, struggle or hope, it can also correct misconceptions and stereotypes about mental health conditions – it can help end stigma. Friends and family members can share their stories too!
There are many ways you can share your story:
Submit a written story, post a video message, upload a photo. With your approval, your story, in whichever format you choose, will be posted on this website for others to see, hear and learn from.
