Stop The Stigma (STS) is a Texas non-profit organization dedicated to eradicating the stigma society places on mental health issues through educating the public and by offering financial assistance to those who are in need of counseling services. It is 100% volunteer based and jointly governed by a small business owner, two licensed professional counselors, and a University of North Texas counseling graduate student. Stop The Stigma contracts with licensed professional counselor interns who agree to offer discounted counseling sessions to individuals being assisted by STS. This discount along with donors' support allows low income individuals to obtain counseling for as little as $25 a session.   Please be a moving force of change by donating today.

Sincerly,

StopTheStigma.org Team
