Stigma is associated with mental health and substance use issues, and can be a barrier to help-seeking in young people. Understanding the impacts of, and reducing stigma is an important step in creating a safe, supportive environment for young people. This webinar, presented by Dr Steph Kershaw, a Research Fellow at the Matilda Centre for Research in Mental Health and Substance Use, has been designed to inform school staff, parents and health professionals working with young people about the impacts of, and ways to reduce stigma and discrimination. The presentation will be followed by a Q&A session.
