Stigma – It’s Personal

Seth Kahan on Mental Health and Substance Use Disorders Stigma and the National Grand Challenge To Eliminate ItI was very fortunate to have a piece published about some of my work. I know firsthand the impact that stigma around mental health can have, as you will see in the story. Here it is, by #CrisisTalk, Seth Kahan on Stigma and the National Grand Challenge To Eliminate It. 

Today, I am the grand challenge adviser to the Huntsman Mental Health Institute at the University of Utah. I am working on a national Grand Challenge to eliminate the stigma around mental health and substance use disorders. I believe that if we can reduce stigma, many more people will get the care they need and their families will be less likely to fall apart, as mine did.

Is there an important social issue that you might take action on this week?
