SXSW isn’t just for artists, entertainers, and techies. It’s also for an assortment of fantastic causes and campaigns that look to leave a profound mark on the world at large.
To that end, Cenpatico is “taking Stamp Out Stigma to downtown Austin during SXSW Interactive.”
Through the end of today, Cenpatico will be on hand in the SXSW community encouraging people to take the online pledge to Stamp Out Stigma and tweet their support for reducing stigma related to mental illness and addictions.
According to the group’s formal announcement of their presence in Austin, the initiative is spearheaded by the Association for Behavioral Health and Wellness (ABHW).
“The Stamp Out Stigma campaign challenges each of us to transform the dialogue on mental health and addiction from a whisper to a conversation,” the statement reads.
