Mental Health Stigma Webinar
March 27, 2019, 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm
In this webinar, Sarah Ketchen Lipson, Assistant Professor of Health Law Policy and Management, will take a deep dive into mental health stigma, examining different forms of stigma (self, personal, perceived, public), relationships between stigma and mental health service utilization, and trends in stigma over time. Sarah will draw on data from her ongoing national Healthy Minds Study, the largest survey of college student mental health. She will describe the social contagion of stigma among college peers, variations in stigma across students’ identities, what colleges are doing to address stigma, and the need for tailored approaches to reach students with the highest levels of stigma. The webinar will underscore why we should care about mental health stigma from a public health perspective.
