Become a Brain Health Advocate

Remember: People are not their disease.
Behavior is not the illness, but rather a response to symptoms of
schizophrenia such as:

  • Hallucinations
  • Delusions
  • Disorganized Thinking
  • Confusion

The Brain Campaign:
Will you take the pledge?

I will change my language from Behavioral or Mental disorder to Brain illness.

I will educate others to change their language from Mental illness to Brain illness.

I will not use stigmatizing, discriminatory, or derogatory language related to Brain illnesses.

I will encourage my peers, family members, and colleagues to advocate when they see discriminatory language or practices in the media or in public.

I will advocate for people with Brain illnesses to have equal and comprehensive healthcare.

I will treat all people with Brain illnesses with respect and compassion.
