Stomp out stigma. Be kind. Think before you speak.

Most people in our society no longer use racial slurs. We don’t use hurtful words to describe physical illnesses. We don’t make fun of religious practices or clothing. But many people still use unkind words when talking about–or even to–the mentally ill. Help MHADC make this a thing of the past.

In 2016 MHADC and NAMI-MH team up once again to bring the Stomp Out Stigma Awareness Walk to Dutchess County for the 4th year! Every year this grows and this year we’re expecting an even bigger turnout – May 21st is the date to save, please join us as we take to the Walkway over the Hudson. Learn more at
