Virtual Forum: How Media & Movies Shape Our Perception Of Serious Mental Illness

Location: Online Via PsychU.org

Description: During this Virtual Forum, you’ll hear from experts Georgia Stevens, PhD, APRN, PMHCNS-BC, Psychiatric Nurse & Director of Partners in Aging & Long-Term Caregiving, and Mary Ann Boyd, PhD, DNS, PMHCNS-BC, Professor Emerita at Southern Illinois University Edwardsville. Join us as speakers discuss the media’s effect on the stigmatization of individuals with schizophrenia or other serious mental illnesses. They’ll review the definition of stigma, the processes associated with stigmatization, the perpetuation by the media of negative stereotypes of individuals with schizophrenia, and the impact of this stigmatization on individuals with serious mental illness. Lastly, our experts will cover current research focused on stigma reduction, the role of advocacy, and tools and materials that can be used to reduce stigmatization toward this population.
