On February 16th, 4:30 p.m. EST Kyrian's guest, Sarah Fader, will discuss her organization, Stigma Fighters.
Stigma Fighters is an organization dedicated to spreading awareness about mental health issues in high schools and colleges around the United States. It began as a blog series where people shared 1000 word essays about living with a variety of mental illnesses. The organization was founded by Psychology Today and Huffington Post Blogger, Sarah Fader. The basis of the program focuses on the invaluable benefits of sharing one’s story. Now, Stigma Fighters is coming off the Internet and into high schools and colleges. Stigma Fighters chapters are being established throughout the United States, beginning with the New York metropolitan area.The organization seeks to empower student’s voices and allow them the opportunity to share their stories with confidence and without fear of being judged.
