Beyond Labels

For 25 years, Acadia Hospital has been offering a full continuum of mental health services and an exceptional team of providers who offer the care and support you need.

Beyond the treatment we provide, however, is our mission of empowering people to improve their lives.  We believe that individuals are defined by the lives they live, not by their challenges. That’s why we have committed to a new campaign called, Beyond Labels.

Through video we will work to decrease the stigma associated with mental illnesses like Paul W.’s social anxiety, Sarah M.’s depression, and Mike B.’s Obsessive Compulsive Disorder (OCD), to name a few.

  • Pasco High School, Dade City, Fla

The point we want to make, most of all, is that mental illness can impact anyone regardless of age, income, race or a host of other variables. It is important for people who are impacted by a mental health challenge that they realize they are not alone, and that there is hope as they search for a sense of well-being in order to live their lives to the fullest.

It’s what we all want; to live to our fullest potential; and we know that management of mental illness can remove a great barrier to being all we can be . . . all we aspire to be; for ourselves and those we love.

The core message we want to convey is this: We are defined by the lives we live, not by our challenges.
Together, we can change the dynamic around mental health, and by doing so, change the trajectories of peoples’ lives. Join us.
