Research-Based Principles of Stigma Reduction

WISE Wisconsin promotes the Principles of Strategic Disclosure and Planned Contact as tools to reduce the stigma associated with mental illnesses. Both components stress the importance of a thoughtful and purposeful interaction. Planned Contact involves the meeting of a person with a mental illness and other individuals or groups with the intent of "increasing inclusion and reducing stigma."

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.

WUMH Current Focus Areas
