Distorted Perceptions: Stigma as a Barrier to Recovery

Jennifer Brown

In this 90-minute presentation, we will examine the issue of stigma —what it is, where it comes from, what it looks like, and its consequences, which are often devastating. Participants will learn how stigmatizing attitudes and behaviors impact all stakeholders in the behavioral health system, and hear about some ways to reduce it, including an introduction to the work of the Anti-Stigma Project and the Distorted Perceptions campaign.
