Webinar: Giving Mental Illness A Voice: Patient Perspectives On Self-Disclosure & Stigma
Location: Online Via PsychU.org
Description: Individuals living with mental illness often struggle with disclosing their mental health condition to others like friends, family, and employers, due to stigma. This stigmatization may impact the individual in many ways, including potentially preventing them from receiving early intervention or treatment. Health care professionals can play a vital role in combating stigma, and talking to patients about self-disclosure.
In this webinar, hear from an individual with a personal perspective, Caroline, as she shares her insights on self-disclosure and stigma related to her diagnosis. In addition, Sloan Manning, MD, and Paul Gionfriddo will speak to the importance of self-disclosure and will share strategies and resources to combat stigma and increase mental health awareness.
