Stigma-Free communities that promote good, mental and behavioral health and treat those in need.
The 1 in 4 Campaign is a grass roots effort to promote mental health awareness throughout DuPage and Cook counties and beyond. Our goal is to reduce the stigma that is associated with mental illness and provide valuable resources to the community. By talking openly about mental health as we do a physical health issue, we can address the needs of mental illness and reduce the barriers that prevent individuals from seeking treatment.
