Stop Stigma Sacramento
The Mental Illness: It’s not always what you think project was initiated by Sacramento County Department of Health and Human Services’ Division of Behavioral Health Services to:
-Reduce stigma and discrimination
-Promote mental health and wellness
-Inspire hope for people and families living with mental illness
Stop Stigma Sacramento is one of the many projects here working to support those with mental illnesses. These are all over the county—on billboards, community boards, and gas pumps.
For mental health resources in the county, visit the NAMI Sacramento website
1 in 10 people have mental illness, so anyone who thinks this is a rare thing, please realize that pretty much one of your friends or family members has one, maybe even you do. It took a long time to realize i had mental illnesses, because they are so stigmatized you don’t want to believe it.
Can we talk about how INCLUSIVE this campaign is?! Several ethnicities, 2 folks who are LG (possibly genderqueer (they’re only id’d as “partner” so I’m not gonna assume one way or another)

The biggest breakthrough I had in writing sex scenes was when someone dropped this knowledge on me: it’s not about the sex. The sex is a trapping, a device (sometimes literally), a method that the characters use for expressing themselves or forwarding their purpose, whether good or bad.
In fiction, every scene should serve a purpose. A sex scene is no different: it needs to have a purpose within the universe you’ve created as a writer, and should contain some element that connects it to the larger plot line. Sex scenes aren’t just about the naughty-fun body parts. There’s always something else going on.
