Please join us for our May Webinar: How to be a StigmaFree Workplace

Event Description:

Mental health stigma refers to the negative attitudes, beliefs, and stereotypes that society holds about individuals who experience mental health conditions. It is a form of social discrimination and prejudice that can lead to various negative consequences for those affected by mental health issues. Learn how through StigmaFree we can combat mental health stigma by promoting public awareness campaigns, education, advocacy, and holding open conversations about mental health. Reducing stigma is crucial for creating a more inclusive and supportive society that allows individuals to seek help, access appropriate treatment, and lead fulfilling lives.

Marriah Kornowa has been serving the Toledo Community for over 20 years and

has experience in both for profit and nonprofit sectors. After earning a bachelor’s

degree in business management, she moved to the nonprofit sector supporting

family reunification, teaching anger management, and workforce readiness. She

went on to complete her master’s degree in organizational leadership developing a

Leadership Academy for the YWCA as her capstone project. There she found her

niche in inspiring a vision and articulating hope for her community.

Trained in restorative justice, she worked to serve families in poverty, youth in

schools and shelters, as well as connecting returning citizens from the prison

system to community resources. While working at United Way and her time in

health care, she became more heavily involved in the Diversity, Equity and Inclusion

space, emphasizing the concept of Belonging.

Marriah is a trained facilitator for Dialogue to Change, the Board Chair for the Lucas County Suicide Prevention Coalition and currently serves as Executive Director of NAMI of Greater Toledo. She prides herself on busting stigmas, embracing difficult conversations with a goal of developing compassion and empathy, and leading by example.
