The goal for the 2017 Say It Forward Campaign is to diminish the stigma of mental illness and encourage people to maintain a balance of strength between their brain and their body. The concept “pay it forward” means to perform one selfless good deed to inspire another; “Say It Forward” does the same thing by educating and speaking out against stigma. Between raising a family, maintaining our careers, our education, and contributing to our communities, it is difficult to take mind to your mind. Together lets join with those who have a bipolar diagnosis, those who provide support and love, and our new friends across the globe to combat stigma by Saying it Forward.
