Back in 2013, Gabrielle Magid, then a student at The University of Florida, noticed that despite free counseling being offered on college campuses, students weren’t going. Some didn’t want to be judged. Others didn’t know where to go. So students struggled alone and in silence.
It wasn’t any better in the real world with the added stress of “adulting”– young professionals struggled, too. Back then, just talking about the subject of mental health was brave. Then it became trendy. But we needed more than talk. We needed to connect. We needed action and advocacy.
Stronger Than Stigma® was born. And it’s growing. From college campuses and beyond, we are joining forces, sharing ideas and supporting one another like never before.
