Together we can fight the stigma!
Pinups for Mental Health Awareness is an organization dedicated to the education of mental health issues.
So many people go untreated with their mental health issues due to fear of being stigmatized or misunderstood. Our goal is to help anyone in need, whether it be someone living with mental illness or those with loved ones who are just seeking education
With this organization, we plan to raise awareness of just how prevalent mental illness is, what the different types of mental illness are (it’s not just depression we’re focusing on), how we can get help, and how to support those in our lives with mental illness. Not only is raising awareness our goal, but we believe education is key. So many people are misinformed when it comes to mental health, which leads to fear of the unknown. We see mental illness depicted on TV and in movies as either glorified or this horrific monster. Which, I believe, causes so many people to go untreated leading to much bigger problems.
