Breaking Down Stigma | Stephanie's Story

Stephanie has struggled her entire life with her mental health, though she didn't recognize it until she was older. She says that people didn't talk about mental health when she was growing up and over time she has seen that people have been more open to sharing their experiences.

Creating awareness for people has been an objective of hers both personally and professionally. She works to reduce stigma, and to create safe spaces for people to talk about their mental health.

Stephanie feels grateful that she had the opportunity to go to Rogers, and she hopes that others will reach out for help in similar ways.
