It will take the voices of many to stop stigma and discrimination in our community. This collection includes real, first-hand stories of everyday people from Sacramento County who are living with or supporting someone living with a mental health condition. By telling their stories, our Speakers Bureau members aim to inspire hope, wellness, recovery and positivity for families and individuals experiencing mental illness. As you read on, you may find that mental illness is not always what you think.
