|Description||This Winter has been harsh and we’re itching to hit the open road and ride. If you are too, Crider Health Center offers you the perfect opportunity to get your knees in the breeze, all while supporting a GREAT CAUSE! Please make plans to join Crider Health Center on Saturday, May 17, 2014 at the 2nd Annual Cruisin’ 4 Crider event. Cruisin’ 4 Crider is an annual awareness ride aimed at raising awareness about mental illness and STOPPING STIGMA IN ITS TRACKS!
Why are we riding? Because adults and children with mental illness face the stigma of societal labels every day of their lives. This stigma can be so debilitating that it keeps a person with mental illness from seeking the help they need to live fuller, more productive and healthier lives. The first thing to understand is that mental illness does not discriminate. 1 in 4 US adults will be affected by mental illness at some point in their lives. Mental illness doesn’t just affect the poor or the uneducated. It simply doesn’t care about race, religion, societal/financial standing, age, or your level of education.
Why are we reaching out to bikers? Because bikers have long endured the hurtful and untrue labels placed on them by society. The only difference is that bikers have succeeded at softening their image over the years. Unfortunately, those with mental illness have not been as successful at changing the minds of a society that judges them based on their lack of understanding. The recent sensationalized news stories being replayed over and over again in our media doesn’t help either. We are hoping to teach society that mental illness is not unlike any other physical illness, such as heart disease and diabetes. Mental illness is treatable.
On Saturday, May 17, 2014, you have the opportunity to let society know that labeling someone for a mental illness is hurtful. You can also let those who are still living in the shadows of their illness know that it is safe for them to step out of the shadows and into healthier lives.
Please make plans to join us as we ride together, united in our message of treating all illnesses (physical and mental) with the same respect.
