People Like Us is a community-wide campaign led by Volunteers of America Chesapeake & Carolinas to give hope, break the stigma and support recovery for underserved community members in Prince George’s and Baltimore Counties in Maryland.

Finding mental health support can feel like an Olympic feat even if you have a support system and insurance coverage. If you are low-income, uninsured or underinsured, or belong to an underserved community, the road to mental wellness can be an ever steeper climb. There’s a wide range of providers, a lack of insurance coverage for some types of treatment, and social stigma that can make it hard to talk about mental health.

Want to help break the stigma? Get involved with People Like Us.
