Step Outline
Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all.

There are people standing­­­­­ shoulder to shoulder who all have different mental illness. There are all holding a whiteboard with the type of illness they have. People are walking past them looking at them as if they were freaks. A person comes with a eraser and erases the mental illness on the board. Other people come with erasers and erase the other people’s whiteboards. The people with the mental illness and the people with the erasers start walking together. A person in front of the crowd is holding up a whiteboard that says end the stigma.
