The prejudices held by many members of society has helped create a discriminatory social climate for persons with mental illnesses, making it much more difficult to sustain employment, find a home, obtain health insurance, or achieve a basic quality of life.

Because of this, the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration's Center for Mental Health Services (CMHS) launched the Elimination of Barriers Initiative (EBI) to identify effective approaches in addressing the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illnesses.
