STIGMA AND MENTAL ILLNESS


This is a two hour workshop presented by People Supporting People (PSP) to aid participants who may be survivors of mental illness, the community-at-large or any other special interest groups, to gain an understanding of "what is stigma?", where it originates, it's effects on individuals with a mental illness and how a community and society as a whole can help to erase it. Participants will have the opportunity to discuss how they have been affected by the stigma associated with a mental illness and how they may have inadvertently contributed to their own or others' stigma. This workshop will also give participants a chance to discuss ways of eradicating stigma on a personal and societal level.
