Project I Am Not Ashamed (Cedar Rapids)
August 18, 2018 @ 10:00 am - 2:00 pm
This Project I Am Not Ashamed. This project was created for one simple reason: breaking the mental health stigma, one person at a time. By creating awareness and education on social media can be effective, but many times we are “preaching to the choir.” To break the stigma, we need to start small and educate the general public by outing ourselves, coming out of hiding, and doing this as a team and as a community.
On Saturday, August 18, 2018 we will go to the streets of our own community with signs that simply read, “I have (your mental illness) or I am a loved one of someone with (their mental illness) and I am not ashamed. Break the stigma. #ProjectIAmNotAshamed.”
Everyone in Cedar Rapids is invited to join us at the Cedar Rapids Downtown Library on Saturday August 18th from 10 AM to 2 PM.
