Tackling The Stigma of Mental Health

This project, funded by Australian Volunteers International (AVI) under the Community Grant Scheme, will work to address misconceptions, negative attitudes and beliefs, direct and inherited stigma about mental health through a series of innovative information sessions on mental illness for people who are social change-makers, private sector employees, government workers and development aid workers. The project will develop and test the material and build a model that can be replicated for wider use.

The project will seek improve the social environment for people who would otherwise inhibit the symptoms of mental illness and would not seek health care.
