It was a pleasure to host Michelle Hammer of Schizophrenic.NYC during our company meeting today! Michelle is a mental health advocate who has dedicated her platform and time to fighting stigma. Michelle shared great insights, including the challenges associated with reducing stigma when what we hear in mainstream media only reflects times of crisis: “crisis with mental illness is public while wellness with mental illness is private.” In order to reduce stigma, she says everyone should challenge preconceived notions about mental illness, remembering that people are more than a diagnosis.
