Additional Information

The phrase “Stamp Out Mental Health” first appeared in an article published in The Canadian Medical Association Journal on July 10, 1965. The article told the story of an advertising executive who disseminated the phrase, and “flooded his native state with bumper stickers proclaiming in scarlet letters”.  The story was a satirization of the role of advertising in public health messages, which can fictionalize the real health campaigns.
