“Beyond The Stigma” is a year-long series sponsored by the New Hampshire Solutions Journalism Lab at the Nackey S. Loeb School of Communications and funded by the New Hampshire Charitable Foundation, Dartmouth-Hitchcock Medical Center, the New Hampshire chapter of the National Alliance on Mental Illness, and private individuals.
During September, the series explored how trauma affects children’s developing brains; how schools are helping kids manage trauma; the programs that help professionals get credentials they need to work in the recovery field; the way a young boy’s life, and his suicide, affected his family; how to spot danger signs of suicide; student-led anti-bullying and mental health awareness campaigns, and more.
