WHITE PLAINS, N.Y. -- The City of White Plains is joining municipalities throughout Westchester to bring mental illness to the forefront.
White Plains will support the National Alliance on Mental Illness campaign. The purpose of NAMI Westchester's Mental Health Awareness Ribbon Campaign is to bring the subject of mental illness to the forefront and offer the NAMI as a community resource, according to a press release.
"By broadening the community's knowledge of mental illness, we replace stigma and judgment with recognition, understanding and support," representatives said in the release. "In keeping with the City's green focus, White Plains will be supporting this campaign digitally. Look for the attached NAMI signs on the City's digital sign boards throughout the month of May."
