#TheReal5150: Stigma-Busting Campaign Gets TV News Coverage in Sacramento

51fiftynewssacLink to Video: 51Fifty: Mental Health Advocates Decry Energy Drink’s Name

Advocate. Advocate. Advocate. Never know how far the ripple will go when working hard to break stigma.

I’m stunned. Just received this link about a news story in Sacramento talking about ‪#‎TheReal5150‬ — and how 51 Fifty Energy Drink is offensive to those of us with brain illnesses. On that newscast they mention some Twitter flack about the name and then show my tweets.

The company did not return a call for a response to the choice of name CBS Sacramento reported.
See folks — I’m here to tell you, ‪#‎WeAreWorthy‬, ‪#‎EachMindMatters‬ and together we can ‪#‎BreakTheStigma‬ of mental illness.

Love you. Thank you for all of your support here, in person, and every way else possible.

    I am so sharing this! Mental illness and all it entails is no joke. Currently, my brother is in federal jail because of his mental illness. The merry-go-round continues for my family and for others like us, and I can tell you we’re not laughing and neither are they!

    1. Thank you for sharing. I know from experience too that this is a time of crisis and shouldn’t be taken lightly — or used to market an energy drink. ❤
