Stop Stigma Sacramento
The Mental Illness: It’s not always what you think project was initiated by Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Behavioral Health Services to:
-Reduce stigma and discrimination
-Promote mental health and wellness
-Inspire hope for people and families living with mental illness
Stop Stigma Sacramento is one of the many projects here working to support those with mental illnesses. These are all over the county—on billboards, community boards, and gas pumps.

1 in 10 people have mental illness, so anyone who thinks this is a rare thing, please realize that pretty much one of your friends or family members has one, maybe even you do. It took a long time to realize i had mental illnesses, because they are so stigmatized you don’t want to believe it.
Can we talk about how INCLUSIVE this campaign is?! Several ethnicities, 2 folks who are LG (possibly genderqueer (they’re only id’d as “partner” so I’m not gonna assume one way or another).
I love this. LOVE.
THIS is how you do an ad campaign people.
this is really incredible and makes me feel good.
and they were talking in AAVE to him
and i was standing right there…maybe they thought i was gay?(please note: not that there’s anything wrong with that.)
i was more mad that these white men were putting on Black speech to speak to my (black) SO. i’ve had that happened to me too when i encounter white gay men.
Some notes from DC Pride with blkgirlblogging
- hundreds of queer white men
- lots of random afro wigs on those same white queer men
- saw the words “I kiki’d too hard last night” on some t shirts of these men
- blkgirlblogging was told by one of them that DC was “trifling”
- the non POC drag queens looked a hot mess
- being hit on by queer white men using AAVE in front of your partner is not cute
- the hard femme WOC were the best thing at pride #pointblackperiod
this is accurate. we still had a good time though, right?Don't Sweat My Technique
