Summary of presentation 演讲简介
Stigma and discrimination against people with mental illness are common and severe wherever they have been studied (1-3). One surprising aspectof this is that many consumers report that they feel discriminated against by health and social care staff, even though these are precisely the staff who are trained and experienced in offer assistance to people with mental illnesses.Furthermore, the ‘contact’ hypothesis suggests that those with more contact with people with a diagnosis of mental illness will have more favourable andless stigmatising views. This illustrated presentation will review evidence about discrimination and evidence of what is effective (at the local andnational levels) to reduce stigma and discrimination and to promote socialinclusion (5-8;8-10)(1).
