Resources: Toolkits
Rotarians are effective in overcoming stigma.  We have proven this by bringing polio vaccinations into all communities after dispelling the myths that had for decades prevented this medical resource from reaching every child. 
Action group members are now proving effective in overcoming stigma around mental health and introducing resources to not only increase awareness but to actually increase capacity for prevention and earlier treatment.  On this page are resources in the form of toolkits that range from simple projects to community-wide programs:
  • overcoming stigma (Don't Bottle it Up)
  • developing cognitive flexibility with a model for creative problem solving (PIP Problems-Ideas-Plans)
  • improve student knowledge, attitude and help-seeking (Wellness in a Box; Resilence)
  • increase the capacity for behavioral health care (Building Bridges of Understanding)
