Visions - Stigma and Discrimination

PDF | Vol. 2, No. 6 (2005)

The articles in this edition of Visions talk of the many forms stigma take—societal, interpersonal, internal. As readers of this issue, we are already likely aware of the negative, often destructive impact of stigma on the lives of persons with mental illness and/or addictions. Stigma will only cease to exist when people are valued for who they are. This issue takes a deeper look at first-hand experiences of living with stigma.
