Addressing the stigma of mental health

Talking about depression can be hard — but talking is the first step to feeling better.

That’s why we’ve partnered with StoryCorps, a national oral history project, to capture intimate conversations about depression and mental health between people who know each other well.

It’s the latest step in Kaiser Permanente’s #FindYourWords campaign, which tackles the stigma that prevents many of us from talking about mental health and wellness.

After all, millions in the U.S. live with a mental health condition, and no one needs to face it alone — but no one can help if we don’t talk.
