[ARCHIVED] Help Support a Stigma-Free Asbury Park

Stigma Free Asbury Park-1

The Monmouth County Stigma-Free Initiative is a countywide program that aims to reduce the stigmas associated with mental illness and substance use disorder by raising awareness of the diseases and creating a culture where residents feel supported by their community and neighbors and feel free to seek treatment without fear of stigma.

In 2023, the City of Asbury Park, through the Mayor’s Wellness Committee, is partnering with local non-profit organizations to support the initiative and take on stigma in our community. Each month, the program will focus on at least one activity, live or virtual, to help raise awareness and create a discussion on how stigma affects our community.

Join us to help fight stigma and make the Asbury Park community feel supported. For questions or to volunteer, call 732-502-4582 or email
