Northeast Delta HSA works to battle the stigma of getting help for mental health

Mental health has always been able to affected our potential to live our lives and can cause a negative result from doing so. DeRon Talley, the public information director at Northeast Delta HSA, shares insight into a new campaign to assist individuals that may be hesitant to receive the help they need. 

Why is this project important?

"This work is significant because as we continue to identify and break the individual, family, and community stigmas that individuals who are needing treatment experience, the citizens will use our integrated care model's services more."

For more information, you can contact NEDHSA's Special Initiative Manager Julia Albritton by email at or contact DeRon Talley at
