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.

June 3rd on the Walkway over the Hudson, MHA Dutchess and NAMI-MidHudson have teamed up once again to Stomp Out Stigma. Learn more at
