Stand Together is a student-to-student initiative that inspires and equips youth to take action against stigma associated with mental illness and substance use disorders. The program engages middle and high school students by providing anti-stigma training and service learning experiences. Students work to ‘stand together’ to increase education and awareness, increase social inclusion, and encourage adolescents to talk to an adult if they are concerned about their own or another student’s mental health.

Sign our pledge
One out of five youth have a mental illness or substance use disorder. Stigma and discrimination can have a devastating effect on them. They are our friends, family, fellow students, co-workers, and neighbors. The good news is people can and do recover from mental illness and substance use disorders and lead satisfying productive lives. If you are living with a mental illness, know someone who is, or just want to help, take our pledge to help end stigma.
