What is a stigma-free zone?

Stigma-Free Zones have officially designated spaces where schools have worked with the Stigma-Free Society to become, essentially, Stigma-Free. 

The designation process requires education and a strong commitment that preserves a Stigma-Free culture. Commitment to awareness and understanding of the various stigmas, while maintaining a safe space where people are accepting of themselves and others is essential to receive the Stigma-Free designation. 

We’re also proud to designate individuals as “Stigma-Free Champions”. These champions are individuals who lead and promote ongoing activities to have their school, business/organization or geographic area receive the honor of working towards a Stigma-Free designation.
