I Pledge to:

  • Educate myself about the various stigmas in society and learn how negative perceptions and attitudes can affect people. Share my findings with others.
  • Be open to talk about and learn the facts about societal stigma, particularly the stigma of mental illness.
  • Tell at least one person about the Stigma-Free Test on the Stigma-Free Zone Superheroes website and encourage them to assess their own views and perceptions.
  • Make a strong public commitment to live the values of respect and inclusion for all people with differences such as mental illness, physical and developmental disabilities, race, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression or religion.
  • Remind my peers that name-calling and bullying are “not OK at our school or anywhere else,” and stand up to for people that are being targeted by bullies by creating and enforcing a Stigma-Free Zone.
  • Avoid language that puts someone down because of differences such as mental illness, physical and developmental disabilities, race, sexual orientation, gender identity/expression or religion.
  • Think about my response to daily situations and ‘check’ my attitude where I may initially judge someone who faces stigma in their daily lives.
