What's new for 2016-2017?!

We’re so excited to be starting our 4th year with the Stand Together project! All seven (7) of our schools from last year are returning, as well as ECS from years 1 & 2. Welcome to the team, Carlynton & Fox Chapel! We look forward to another great year as we Stand Together against stigma.

Since it’s been a few years since the program was created, we’ve been working hard to revamp the workshops, utilizing new activities and videos and incorporating an extensive social media campaign. In addition, the entire ST staff has ‘lived experience,’ which means they themselves have mental illness/history of substance use disorder. This ‘first person’ perspective is crucial for participants to understand the importance of anti-stigma programs and breaking down barriers to services people so desperately need.

Feel free to explore the changes to our website and connect with us on Facebook, Twitter, & Instagram. Contact us with any questions or if you want to be involved. Hope to hear from you soon!
