NAMI's Ending the Stigma Panel is a panel discussion that will allow those affected by mental illness, mental health professionals, and psychology professionals to inform student and community members about how the stigma surrounding mental illness impacts individuals, family members, and the community as a whole. This event aims to promote and normalize the discussion of mental health, to educate attendees on the realities of mental illness and recovery, and to challenge how we discuss mental illnesses. Western students, staff, faculty, and community members, working in mental health or passionate about mental health promotion are encouraged to attend. Ending the Stigma Panel is free for students, staff, and the community, but donations will be accepted at the door. For disability accommodations, please contact as.disability@wwu.edu.
