More Than a Stigma Best in Network Nomination Video

More Than a Stigma is a student-driven awareness campaign aimed at erasing the stigma attached to mental illnesses. While it began as a school project, More Than a Stigma became something more akin to a non-profit organization. Our students treated themselves more like employees than students and took on the according roles and responsibilities. We encourage anyone who would like to add their voice and efforts to this campaign to contact us.
