About the Campaign
The It’s Up To Us campaign is designed to empower San Diegans to talk openly about mental illness, recognize symptoms, utilize local resources and seek help. One in four adult San Diegans suffer from a diagnosable mental disorder and nearly one out of every five children experience some degree of an emotional or behavioral difficulty. Mental health challenges are just as important to address as physical illness. But often, people do not get help, because of the stigma that is associated with having a mental illness.
By raising awareness, educating the community, and providing easy access to local organizations, we can initiate change in perception, inspire wellness and reduce the stigma surrounding mental health challenges.
This campaign is developed through the County of San Diego Health and Human Services Agency, and funded by the Mental Health Services Act.
Help is available. It’s Up to Us.
