It’s no secret among employers that stigma is one of the biggest barriers to engagement in mental health benefits and programs, explaining why more than 90% of recently surveyed companies plan to address this issue in the next 1-2 years. If your company is one of the many tackling mental health stigma, you can’t afford to miss this exclusive two-hour Virtual Summit presenting guiding principles for impactful stigma reduction strategies.

This Virtual Summit will deepen your understanding of mental health stigma by uncovering why people with mental health conditions may not engage with treatment. During this session, you’ll hear about the state of stigma in the U.S., including how gender, race and culture influence attitudes and beliefs about mental health. You’ll also learn research-based guiding principles to improve the impact of your mental health stigma campaigns, such as the messages that resonate (and those that don’t).
