City launches Stigma-Free Fishers


With May being Mental Health Month, the city is introducing a new Stigma-Free Fishers informational campaign and pledge as part of the city’s collaborative mental health initiative.

The Stigma-Free Fishers campaign will encourage residents to reject stigmatizing attitudes toward mental health challenges and instead pledge to be stigma-free.

The pledge challenges residents to learn more about mental health, see the person and not just the illness and to take action by sharing their pledge to be stigma-free.

The campaign kicks off April 26 and the city is asking residents to take the pledge and submit their stories about mental health challenges at

There will be opportunities for people to take the pledge at community events, including the Fishers Farmers Market, and a “Ride Out the Stigma” community-wide bicycle ride to raise awareness of the Stigma-Free Fishers.
