    Five Simple Ways to Help End the Stigma Around Mental Illness
    1. Language matters - Words can help...but they can also hurt.  Pay attention to the words you use.
    2. Educate yourself - Myths exist about mental illness that contribute to stigma.  Learn the facts.
    3. Be kind -Small acts of kindness speak volumes.
    4. Listen and ask - Sometimes it is best to just listen.
    5. Talk about it - Start a dialogue, not a debate.
    SPREAD THE WORD. Get all the information you need to lead a conversation about mental health. Check out this link.
