Understanding Stigma

The stigmatization of people living with mental health and addiction problems is all too common in Canada, including in healthcare environments. People with lived experiences of mental health and addiction problems often report feeling devalued, dismissed and dehumanized by many of the healthcare professionals with whom they come into contact. The Mental Health Commission of Canada adapted the Understanding Stigma course based on an in-person workshop created by mental health and addiction professionals under the leadership of the Central Local Health Integration Network. This free self-directed course is available in both official languages and consists of three modules that focus on raising awareness, the impacts of stigma, and challenging stigma and discrimination. The course is available on www.understandingstigma.ca.
