Stigma Free Task Force

Stigma Free Task Force Information

The Glen Rock STIGMA FREE Task Force serves as a committee to represent and develop programming for the greater Bergen County STIGMA-FREE Initiative.  The program is a county-wide movement which aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness. It is dedicated to raising awareness of the disease of mental illness and create a culture wherein residents feel supported by their community and neighbors, and feel free to seek treatment for the disease without fear of stigma.

The Stigma-Free Initiative will:

  • Educate residents that mental illness is a disease and must be treated as such
  • Raise awareness of the prevalence of mental illness in our community
  • Provoke public interest in learning what is “STIGMA-FREE”
  • Providing residents an opportunity to become involved in their community
  • Allow people living with the disease to feel supported by their community and thus decrease feelings of isolation and shame
  • Link people in need to local mental health resources
  • Raise awareness that care is accessible regardless of income


In the event of a medical emergency, call 911.

Feeling like something isn’t quite right? Take a free, anonymous mental health screening at to see if what you’re experiencing might be a sign of a mental health condition.
