Research-Based Principles of Stigma Reduction

"Research has found the most effective way to reduce the stigma associated with mental illness is for people to meet people living in recovery and learn their story. As defined by SAMHSA, recovery is “A process of change through which individuals improve their health and wellness, live a self-directed life, and strive to reach their full potential.”"

Wisconsin United for Mental Health is a diverse coalition of citizens dedicated to working collaboratively to eliminate the stigma and discrimination associated with mental illness. Our initiatives promote mental health awareness and education with a wide variety of target audiences, e.g. media, employers, hospitals, and others. The goal is to expand awareness, improve inclusion and use of best practices in multiple environments and systems, and build linkages to support recovery.
