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.”"
