    MISRed stigma and discrimination project

    The aim of the project is to undertake consultations to inform a national stigma and discrimination reduction strategy, with a focus on mental illness that is poorly understood in the community. While we understand that not everyone uses these diagnostic terms, for the purposes of this project, ‘mental illness that is poorly understood in the community’ refers to schizophrenia, bipolar disorder, psychosis, and personality disorders. We are using these terms because we wish to emphasise that the focus should not be on anxiety and depression. The project is funded by the Commonwealth Department of Health.
