Addressing Strategies to Address Mental Health: A Virtual Summit Series

Tackling Mental Health Stigma: Guiding Principles for Impactful Strategies

Wednesday, June 26, 2019

12:00-2:00pm EST

It’s no secret among employers that stigma is one of the biggest barriers to engagement in mental health benefits and programs, explaining why almost one third of large employers have anti-stigma campaigns in place. 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).

Virtual Summit Speakers:

  • Emma Beth McGinty, PhD, Associate Professor, Johns Hopkins Bloomberg School of Public Health
  • Jodi Jacobson Frey, PhD, Associate Professor, The University of Maryland, School of Social Work
  • Victor Armstrong, Vice President Behavioral Health, Atrium Health
