SEMINAR: SPAMH presents Q&A: Out of Sight, Out of Mind
|SPAMH presents Q&A: Out of Sight, Out of Mind : An expert panel, including Tim Marney, will be exploring the issue of stigma and discrimination against mental illness in a question and answer session with audience involvement.
“Mental illness is nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all.”
In Australia, it is estimated that 45 per cent of people will experience a mental health condition in their lifetime.
This prevalent condition should be at the forefront of social consideration and health policy.
However, this is not the case - the millennium development goals have wholly ignored this area of health, and society has appeared to put mental illness ‘Out of sight’ and ‘Out of mind’.
Come join SPAMH as we explore how stigma and discrimination against mental illness affects sufferers, their carers, health professionals in the field and ultimately, serves as a major barrier to quality health care delivery, treatment and recovery.
Do not miss out on this opportunity to have YOUR questions answered by our expert panel and discover how stigma can be combated on a personal, social and policy level.
