PUBLIC TALK: **Sold Out** Stigma of Mental Illness
A lecture by Professor Norman Sartorius, President, Association for the Improvement of Mental Health Programmes & former director of the World Health Organizationís Division of Mental Health.
Stigma attached to mental illness is the main obstacle to progress in the field of mental health.
It affects the life of people who suffer from mental illness, their families, mental health services and treatment methods used in dealing with mental illness. In fighting stigma, countries, as well as agencies and institutions, have adopted a number of postulates which need re-examination because they did not allow as much success to anti stigma programmes as one would expect from the investment made.
The lecture will discuss these postulates and propose ways in which they could be re-formulated so as to allow the development of effective interventions against stigma and its consequences.
