Stigma Free Florida
The Stigma Free Florida campaign is a partnership between NAMI Florida, the state’s largest grassroots organization for individuals and families facing mental health challenges, and the HR Florida State Council, an affiliate of the Society of Human Resource Management.
The mission of Stigma Free Florida is to change attitudes within workplaces regarding mental health and individuals with mental illness. This campaign targets leaders of businesses and organizations who are decision-makers and can influence the workplace culture.
By signing onto our campaign, these leaders will work with NAMI Florida and its affiliates to increase knowledge and expertise around employee mental health. Companies and organizations that take part in the Stigma Free Florida campaign utilize the information and resources of NAMI Florida and will have their business names listed on our website as a Stigma Free Florida partner.
Through leadership, supervisors, managers, and all employees will be encouraged to learn about mental illness, and how silence is undermining workplace productivity. The campaign will show how understanding, empathy and treatment can improve the well-being of employees and increase productivity at the same time.
