Stigma Free Workplace Initiative 


At NAMI Louisville, we believe in the power of mental health assessment and treatment to allow individuals and their families to lead successful, fulfilling lives. That’s why we’ve started the Stigma Free Workplace Initiative.

The Stigma Free Workplace Initiative empowers employers to develop and retain experienced human capital while reducing costs associating with absenteeism, stagnant productivity and workplace friction. We engage with employers in a process that promotes diverse, compassionate work environments where mental health is acknowledged and accessibility to resources is prioritized. By destigmatizing mental health, we are opening doors and minds, and creating workplaces where the impact of mental health is minimized through normalizing the conversation.
