Fighting “the stigma of mental illness” is not an academic pursuit.
It’s both a social justice and public health issue.
Welcome to the 3rd of our 4-part look at the stigma of mental illness.
In this episode, we’ll hear from several past guests
about the actual real-world, real-life benefits of reducing the stigma surrounding mental illness.
Those benefits include promoting mental wellness and reducing the risk of harm to individuals with diagnoses.
We will discuss the positive impacts of creating an inclusive and supportive environment for individuals with mental illness
and the broader benefits of destigmatizing mental health.
