As we work together on a mission to erase stigma around mental illness, it is important to continue to strive to share community resources, research findings, and support in promoting mental health well-being. The Citizenship, Recovery, Inclusive Society Partnership (CRISP); the National Consortium on Stigma and Empowerment; and Illinois Tech’s chapter of Active Minds have partnered to sponsor the Stigma & Recovery Symposium at Illinois Tech.
