No matter how you slice it, stigma is wrong

KBH and Cappza’s Pizza of Waterville are teaming up for Mental Illness Awareness Week from Oct. 6_12. Cappza’s Pizza will donate 25 cents to the non-profit KBH for every pizza sold that week. The donation of a quarter for each pizza sold represents the percentage of Americans who will have a diagnosable mental health concern or behavioral disorder during their lifetimes.

KBH thanks Chad Partridge and the team at Cappza’s Pizza for helping to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. Many adults and young people go without the help they need because of the stigma. Mental illness is no one’s fault. Mental illnesses are treatable through medication and psychosocial therapies, allowing those who live with them the chance to live their lives to their fullest.

No one should have to live their life ashamed of their illness. That is why KBH works hard to fight stigma. Help us help others - one pizza at a time by enjoying a Cappza’s Pizza the week of Oct. 6. Proceeds will go toward supporting the programs and services that promote the well-being of children, adults and families who experience mental illness, emotional or developmental difficulties or behavioral challenges.
