MORRIS COUNTY — Rotary International District 7475 will host a series of 4 walkathons bringing attention to mental health stigmas on Saturday, May 22.
Rotary has declared District 7475 to be stigma-free as of March 2021. The goal now is to eliminate the stigma associated with mental health and substance use disorders through education and creating public awareness.
Rotary seeks to create open working relationships with its towns and communities to help people overcome the resistance to seeking help and by eliminating the stigma that often makes people feel overwhelmed.
