RIDGEWOOD, N.J. -- The Ridgewood Health Department will launch its new Stigma Free campaign for those suffering from mental illness with a marching group in the Ridgewood Fourth of July parade.

Dawn Cetrulo, Ridgewood Health Department supervisor, invites participants to join the group. Those interested should contact her at dcetrulo@ridgewoodnj.net.

The Bergen County Stigma-Free Campaign is a countywide program that aims to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness.

The campaign is dedicated to raising awareness of the disease of mental illness and creating a culture wherein residents who have the disease feel supported by their community and neighbors and feel free to seek treatment for the disease without fear of stigma.
