Stigma and discrimination against people with mental illness is common and severe wherever it has been studied. One surprising aspect of this is that many consumers report that they feel discriminated against by health and social care staff, even though these are precisely the staff who are trained and experienced in offering assistance to people with mental illnesses. Furthermore, the 'social contact' hypothesis suggests that those with more contact with people with a diagnosis of mental illness will have more favourable and less stigmatising views. This lecture will review evidence about discrimination and evidence of what is effective to reduce stigma and discrimination.
