Wentzville, MO – May 17, 2014: 2nd Annual Cruisin’ 4 Crider

Saturday, May 17, 2014 from 9:00 AM to 3:00 PM

Host: Pam Imboden

Just like bikers and motorcycle enthusiasts, children and adults living with mental illness face the stigma of societal labels. Often labeled as outcasts, those with mental illness live in the shadows–hiding their illness while enduring the constant pain of bullying and ridicule. Sadly, many living with mental illness never receive the help they need to live fuller, more productive, and healthier lives.

Like heart disease or diabetes, mental illness is treatable. You can help those with mental illness find the courage to step out of the shadows and into healthier lives by taking a stand against stigma!

On Saturday, May 17. 2014. help us stop stigma in its tracks!
