Since 2011, NoStigmas has empowered a global peer support network of mental health advocates through education, resources and support. As a 501(c)(3) Public Charity verified by the IRS and GuideStar, you can feel confident your generous gift will be used to support these programs. Thank you for your donation!

No one will ever fully understand the impact that NoStigmas has had in my life. Having gone through my own battle with mental illness, I have never felt more empowered and determined to help spread the word of how this organization is making a difference. I am no longer ashamed of my past and I hope to encourage others to come forward and seek the help they need.

Why Peer Support is Needed

Quite simply, those who have support tend to live more fulfilling lives and are less likely to die by suicide. Here are some people your support will help:

  • People who are uninsured or have limited access to traditional healthcare
  • Those living with a mental illness, substance use disorder, post-tramatic stress, self-harm and anxiety disorders
  • Caretakers of those in need of support
  • The LGBT, military and immigrant communities

The most common complaint we hear is, “I’ve searched for hours/days and can’t find the information I need to help myself/a loved one.” Help us continue to cultivate these resources and support and ever-growing peer support network!
