Eighth-grade peer mentors at South Allegheny Middle School in Pennsylvania on Monday kicked off Stop the Stigma Week to help their classmates better understand mental health disorders and to end stigmas associated with the disorders. As part of character education session, the students used mannequins as part of presentations about the stigma associated with mental illness. "These students are teaching other kids what mental illness really is. They're being positive role models by explaining stigma and how to avoid it," said teacher Shannon Campbell.
