Hackensack is Proud to be Stigma-Free

The Bergen County STIGMA-FREE Campaign is a county-wide program which aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. The program is dedicated to raising awareness of the disease of mental illness and to creating a culture wherein residents who have the disease feel supported by their community and neighbors and feel free to seek treatment for the disease without fear of stigma.
