Understanding Stigma

Understanding Stigma is a course aimed at students looking to increase their awareness of what we mean when we talk about stigma in relation to mental health, and its potential impacts on people from all walks of life. We look at how legislation, the media, education and our daily interactions can all influence, and be influenced by stigma, and at the different ways in which people can and are working to challenge and change stigma.
The course is suitable for anyone wishing to gain a better understanding of stigma and its impacts, and may be of particular interest to people with an interest in mental health advocacy.
