“Progress is being made in how American adults view mental health, and the important role it plays in our everyday lives. People see connection between mental health and overall well-being, our ability to function at work and at home and how we view the world around us,” states Dr. Christine Moutier, chief medical officer of the American Foundation for Suicide Prevention.

The goal is to reduce stigma as more people with or without mental health issues continue to discuss this topic. In the end, societies can hope for a stigma-free world.
