Take The Pledge With Gear Head To Be Stigma-Free

It is 2023 and Gear Head is still holding strong to our Pledge to be Stigma Free.

Want to talk to someone? Anyone in crisis can now call 988 to speak with a trained crisis counselor.

With just 1 out of 5 people suffering with Mental Health conditions, I think it is time we end the stigma around mental health.

People suffering from depression, PTSD, bipolar, anxiety disorders and other mental health conditions shouldn't be looked at and treated any differently than someone who has any other illness.

Mental Health conditions can affect anyone at any age and it is all out of your control. Mental Health is not a choice and those struggling with Mental Health related disorders didn't ask for it.

Take the Military Veterans who have went to war and came back with PTSD for example, they experienced a traumatic experience. Those men and women didn't ask for that, even though they knew the cost, they just simply wanted to serve their Country and protect their loved ones here at home.

Then you have individuals that can inherit Mental Health conditions from their family, these conditions can range from autism, anxiety disorders, attention deficit hyperactivity disorder (ADHD), bipolar disorder, major depression to schizophrenia and more.

People with Mental Health conditions can go on to live very successful lives. Take Devon Murray from Harry Potter for example, he recently opened up about his struggle with depression and his efforts to end the Stigma around Mental Health.

We need to #EndTheStigma around mental health as it can be just as serious as any other illness.

You are not alone!

Since we know a few people who struggle with mental health, Gear Head has pledged to be '#StigmaFree'.
