Stop the Stigma ROC
Stop the Stigma ROC (STS) is an organization that seeks to promote suicide prevention and raise awareness about mental health, specifically in youth (ages 10-25). As a youth-led organization we hope to do this through education and by providing a forum for open conversation and dialog. We feel the best way to prevent suicide is to reduce the stigma surrounding mental illness. Through conversation barriers are lessened between persons struggling with suicidal thoughts and needed professional help. We hope to connect those who need help with those who are able to provide help. The STS organization volunteers will not offer counseling services. In all cases for counseling we will refer any and all individuals to trained mental health professionals.
