Our mission is to make Norfolk a stigma-free community where everyone feels safe to talk about a need for treatment and care related to mental health.

The vision of the coalition is to create safe spaces all over town where residents, clients, students, congregants, and employees feel ready and able to seek the help they need, when they need it.

Our core initiative is Talk About It Norfolk, an on-going campaign to bring conversations about mental health out of the shadows of stigma and into everyday conversations.

Get the Facts on Mental Health in Our City.

An estimated 60,000 or more Norfolk residents will deal with mental illness in their lives — some of which are confronting it now. This month-long initiative is designed to reduce the stigma around mental health, to encourage those impacted to seek the help they need, and to empower others to engage in conversation with those they suspect may be in crisis.
